Bangalore to host Irani Cup 2012

Bangalore, Sep 10: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has shifted Irani Cup 2012 game from Jaipur to Bangalore's M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Due to poor weather conditions at the original city, the BCCI on Monday decided to give the hosting rights to Bangalore.

"We are ready to host the game," said former India cricketer, Vijay Bharadwaj, who is a Managing Committee member of Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA).
