Mumbai :Former Indian captain Kapil Dev's lighting company 'Dev Musco Lighting' is likely to get the Rs four crore contract to floodlit the Brabourne stadium at the Cricket Club of India (CCI) in Mumbai.

The former all-rounder will most probably get the contract, which will be finalised on July 7, because we know he will do a very good job, CCI chief and former president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Raj Singh Dungarpur said.

"In fact Kapil was very generous when the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) wanted to install lights at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera (Ahmedabad) and he even let them pay the expenses on installment basis," Dungarpur said.

"Kapil's company have also done a very good job at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium In Mohali, the Barabati Stadium in Orissa and the Amby Hills golf course in New Delhi and his company has to be the first choice," Dungarpur added.

"Stadiums should have floodlights especially with the amount of day-night matches being played everywhere. The project which is likely to cost Rs four to Rs five crore might be borne by the club itself even though we are looking for sponsors," Dungarpur said.

Dungarpur also clarified that installing floodlights does not mean that the BCCI fixtures will be shifted to the Brabourne Stadium.

"There are other first class matches and ties for players' benefits apart from Tests and One-day Internationals that can be played at the CCI," he added.
