Rain fiasco wakes up sleeping CAB ahead of 2016 WT20 final

With Eden Gardens slated to host the World Twenty20 final in less than six months time, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) have started serious efforts not to lose the marquee fixture in the wake of on Thursday’s rain abandonment fiasco.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who is CAB’s president designate, also seemed deeply concerned and was seen talking to chief curator Prabir Mukherjee’s assistant Shankarshan Pal and the groundsmen. “He was telling them to get the ground ready for the upcoming Ranji Trophy match from October 15,” a CAB official said. Eden Gardens curator Mukherjee, who was squarely blamed for the episode abandonment of on Thursday’s third and final Twenty20 match between India and South Africa, was adamant not to show his face again, while the CAB on Friday softened its stance on the octogenarian. CAB treasurer Biswarup Dey, who had demanded the curator’s resignation last night, on Friday said he would speak to the curator personally, apparently to convince him to return to his job.
