IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

Eden Gardens gets four World Cup games


eden-gardenEden Gardens has been given for four World Cup 2011 matches, including one involving India, though it has not hosted an ODI since 2007. The decision was taken by the local organising committee of the tournament, which also allotted Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Nagpur four games each - with one India game for each of the four venues.

Kolkata has been ignored as a host for international matches since former BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya, a rival of the current Sharad Pawar-Shashank Manohar faction, returned to power in the state, but it will begin its preparations for the World Cup with a one-dayer between India and Sri Lanka in December.

Mohali, which will host a semi-final, Ahmedabad, the venue for a quarter-final, and Mumbai, where the final will be played, will also get two other games each.

The remaining matches will be divided between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
