The government body of world cricket concurred. “The decision has been brought taking after the conference with the BCCI, the pertinent state affiliations, the ICC and BCCI security expert and other important authorities.
“The decision to migrate the match has been made for security reasons. The concerns, at first, emerged taking after affirmed open remarks as of late reported by the Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, cautioning of demonstrations and endeavors to disturb the tranquil behavior of the match,” ICC CEO David Richardson said.
Ganguly, notwithstanding, remained by Dharamsala. “I feel for Dharamsala. I sympathize with Anurag Thakur. They have one of the best stadiums in India and they are passing up a major opportunity for no shortcoming of theirs. In the meantime, I’m glad. This has been continuing for some time and we asked for the BCCI on the grounds that it’s Eden Gardens; as a result of its history,” he said on Tuesday.
The previous India skipper also said. “Association and logistics won’t be that difficult however ticketing would be intense. We are getting tickets for this diversion on March 12. Two days will go for stamping and at exactly that point, the public sale can start,” said Ganguly. Tickets would be priced at Rs 500, 1,000 and 1,500.
From Pakistan’s perspective, they would clearly be content with the change. They haven’t ever lost a diversion against India at Eden Gardens. For Eden Gardens, this has been kind of idyllic equity also.
