BCCI chief upset over Eden pitch

Kolkata, Dec 8: BCCI President N Srinivasan during a meeting with Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) chief Jagmohan Dalmiya expressed his unhappiness about the track offered for the third Test against England since Indians are struggling to save pride at Eden Gardens.

"Srinivasan very informally said that things could have been different. He seemed somewhat unhappy," a senior CAB official said.

A BCCI source added that Srinivasan was not happy with the Eden track since it is not favouring the home team.

"He said he was all for good cricket but the home advantage has to be kept in mind. He also said when the Indian team goes abroad it has to contend with unfavourable tracks," the official said.

Talking to reporters after the meeting, Srinivasan said"I cannot comment on the Eden pitch because I am not a technical person.'

When asked about India's performance and the pitch not assisting the home team, Srinivasan added that 'India will have to bat well in the second innings."

According to a source, Srinivasan confirmed that Eden Gardens would be hosting the second ODI against Pakistan early next year.

"We also discussed about the coming Pakistan tour in which Eden would host the second ODI," he said.

Moreover, it is learnt that Srinivasan also met the veteran curator Prabir Mukherjee who has been criticised for his outburst in the media and was told not to limit his interaction with mediapersons.
