ICC refuses to change decision on Eden Gardens

ICC refuses to change decision on Eden Gardens

The International Cricket Council has refused to reconsider its decision to drop Eden Gardens as host of the India-England World Cup match next month.
The ICC on Thursday said India's premier ground failed an inspection this week and would not be ready in time for the Feb. 27 match.
Humbled Indian administrators immediately asked for more time, but tournament director Ratnakar Shetty confirmed to The Associated Press on Saturday that the "ICC had refused to change its decision on Eden Gardens."
An alternative venue, reportedly Bangalore, is likely to be announced on Monday for the thousands of ticket-holders.
The three other group matches in March at Eden Gardens are expected to green-lighted.
