Thilanga asks ICC to reconsider

Former Sri Lanka Cricket and Asian Cricket Council President, Former ICC Director and Parliamentarian Thilanga Sumathipala in a letter to the International Cricket Council president Sharad Pawar has requested that the ICC reconsider the Eden Gardens Stadium as a world cup venue.

In his letter Sumathipala points out that playing at Eden Garden is the pride for any Indian or International cricketer.

“It has staged the 1987 World Cup finals. In the 1996 World Cup, Sri Lanka won the semi finals in front of over 110,000 spectators and we have played the first ever World Test Championship there. “For any young cricketer playing at Lords in London, the MCG in Australia and Eden Gardens in India is a dream come true.”

The letter also states that the COC of the ICC must make every endeavor to make play possible at Eden Gardens rather than finding a way not to play. “We Sri Lankans are willing to put 100 percent support behind the Board of Control for Cricket in India and to request the ICC to reconsider playing at the historical Eden Gardens Cricket Ground.”
