New Delhi:India's chances of hosting the second leg of the Tsunami Charity game will now largely depend on the Government of India.

Asian Cricket Council (ACC) President Jagmohan Dalmiya on Tuesday met the Union Sports Minister Sunil Dutt on Monday and informed him that the match can only be hosted at a venue that gave total tax exemption.

The duo along with Rajeev Shukla, Vice President of the BCCI later met Finance minister P Chidambaram today and briefed him on the issue.

The match will likely to be held in mid-February and although a venue is yet to be decided, Kolkata is tipped to host the tie.
