The Bengal Cricket Association (CAB) petitioned the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday to allow spectators at Eden Gardens for the T20I series against the West Indies.
“The matter related to the organization of the three international T20 matches between India and the West Indies was discussed ad nauseam,” CAB said in a statement. “Members were informed that the CAB has applied to the BCCI to allow spectators at the venue. BCCI feedback is awaited. CAB is still hopeful for a positive outcome.”
India and West Indies will meet in the T20I series at Eden Gardens, Kolkata starting on February 16.
The CAB Apex Council meeting also approved the decision that the lighting system at Eden Gardens needed renovation and the LED system needed to be installed as soon as possible with the DMX installation.
Furthermore, it was decided that the matches and tournament rules for the upcoming league tournaments for both the first and second divisions can be published immediately.
“The registration window for players has been extended until February 28, 2022, taking into account the current relaxations agreed by the State Government to make it easier for clubs, units and players to come and complete their registration procedures” CAB said.
