Kolkata likely to host India-Pakistan match on March 19
The most awaited and controversial India vs Pakistan for ICC T20 world cup 2016, held on 19th March is likely to be held at Eden Gardens in Kolkata instead of previous announced DharamShala Cricket Stadium in India, media authorities revealed.
According to the reports, the first match of Pakistan cricket team against Indian on 19th March was proposed to be played at Dharamshala Cricket Stadium, on which Pakistan has sent a delegation to check and analyze security measurements over stadium.
Pakistani side is still not satisfied with the arrangements due to continuous warnings from Indian extremists as they threatened to dig out the pitch if green shirts play at Dharamshala Stadium.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) expressed anger on Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh for not giving clear stance regarding Pakistan team’s security and considered to change the venue from Dharamshala Cricket Stadium to Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
