Chandigarh: ICL chairman Kapil Dev on Tuesday met top Administration officials and requested them to give the Chandigarh, Sector 16 cricket ground for conducting some forthcoming matches of the League. Kapil Dev has been very keen to host ICL matches at the stadium where he learned his first cricketing lessons and went on to lead the Indian cricket team.

The ICL will send a formal proposal in this regard to the Administration in a couple of days. The proposal will have a blueprint of sprucing up and enhancing the stadium's infrastructure attached to it. Officials said the Administration would then decide on the terms and conditions of the deal, and also the date when the stadium could be given to the ICL.

The ICL matches were held at the Tau Devi Lal Stadium last year after the UT Administration had said no to the Sector 16 stadium.

Ten months back, the Haryana Cricket Association had also organised an India-Australia One-dayer on the Sector 16 ground.
