Improve facilities, ICC tells CAB

The ICC team, in their first stop over of the India leg, was though satisfied with the pitch and overall condition of the stadium.

“It is a historical ground which has hosted the World Cup final (1987), semi-final (1996) in the past. It’s wonderful to see the redevelopment work going on at full swing. We have exchanged few thoughts and this is just the beginning of an ongoing process,” said ICC events manager Chris Tetley.

CAB joint secretary Biswarup Dey said, “They want the dressing room to be improved. There should be ample space for relaxation and a separate dining space that should be adjacent to the dressing room.”
The team, which included former Australian off-spinner Tim May, currently the CEO of Federation of International Cricket Association said, “We are associated with ICC since the last World Cup in the West Indies in 2007. We have been looking after matters related to players.” After spending the entire day with CAB top brass including supremo Jagmohan Dalmiya at Eden Gardens, the delegates split up into two groups to inspect hotel arrangements and Jadavpur University’s Salt Lake campus ground where the teams would be playing their warm-up games.
