Calcutta tsunami match cancelled Discuss More

The second tsunami appeal cricket match, scheduled to be held in Calcutta in April, has been cancelled due to the expected hot weather in the city. It was put off for two months due to the unavailability of top players. Now Asian Cricket Council president Jagmohan Dalmiya says he will leave it to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to decide the fate of the match.
"We cannot hold the game in April because it will be very hot in Calcutta," said Dalmiya.
The next such match will probably be the 20 June fixture at the Brit Oval in London.

Second tsunami benefit cricket match on: Mahendra Discuss More

The second tsunami benefit match, which was to be played at Kolkata in April but was cancelled, could still be played, Indian cricket board president Ranbir Singh Mahendra said Tuesday. Mahendra's comments contradicted his predecessor Jagmohan Dalmiya's statement Sunday that the match, which was to be played in mid-April in his home city, was cancelled due to hot weather expected at the time.
Mahendra said the BCCI was negotiating with the International Cricket Council (ICC) as well as the Asian Cricket Council.

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) on Thursday announced that Kolkata would host the second of the tsunami charity matches between Rest of the World and Asian XI on February 13 as the centre had agreed to accord tax exemption to it. ACC President Jagmohan Dalmiya said a charitable trust was being formed to organise the fund raiser as advised by the Finance Ministry.
The announcement of the venue got delayed as he was engaged in consultations with the Finance Ministry for the last one week on the issue of tax exemption, he said.

Eden likely to host aid ODI-II

Calcutta is the likely venue for the return Asian Tsunami Relief Appeal match in February, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said Monday.
ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed said there was a small window of opportunity to stage the game between England's scheduled finish to their five-Test series in South Africa on February 13 and Australia starting their tour to New Zealand on February 17. "We need to fly players in and out and have them there long enough for them to perform at a very high level," Speed told a press conference after the Rest of the World beat Asia by 112 runs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Speed said Calcutta's vast Eden Gardens arena would be favourite to stage the match, while the Sri Lankan capital Colombo had also been discussed.

Mecca of Cricket

Eden Gardens in Calcutta, India is one of the most loveliest and biggest in the world of cricket. It envelops apart from the cricket ground, an indoor cricket stadium, two indoor sports complexes and the All India Radio building. The area is ample enough to include a park, a pond and a pagoda. The first ever first-class match to be played here was in 1917-18, while the first Test match was against Douglas Jardine's MCC in January 1934.
Calcutta Cricket Club (1792) has the reputation of being the oldest surviving cricket club outside the British Isles. The club ground shifted to the present Eden Gardens site in 1864.
It has a maximum capacity exceeding 100,000, rivaled only by the MCG.
