Kolkata: After several inspections and meetings, CAB has finally shifted the Indian camp from CCNFC ground to the Eden Gardens.

The Indian camp will now be held on November second and third at the Eden Gardens instead of the Calcutta Cricket and Football Club.

Accordingly the Bengal-Hyderabad Ranji match had been postponed by a day and now would be played from November four at the Eden Gardens.

Former skipper Sourav Ganguly today inspected the CCNFC ground on request of BCCI. After inspecting he said, ''Prof Shetty had personally called me up and asked me to inspect the said ground and see the facilities. Accordingly I came to the ground and will give my report to him.''

Asked to comment on the forthcoming Pakistan and Australia series, he said,''Both the series are going to be tough one and we have to play really hard to win.'' Later, CAB president Prasun Mukherjee also inspected CCNFC ground and had an urgent meeting with his colleagues.

''I talked to BCCI and also Hyderabad Cricket Association and it has been decided to postpone the Ranji match by a day. Now the Indian camp will be held at Eden Gardens itself.'' ''I saw the pitch at CCNFC ground needed some time to be ready and so a shift in the venue,'' Mukherjee said.
