Board recommends Bangalore for India-England match

The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has recommended Bangalore's M. Chinnaswamy Stadium as an alternative venue for next month's World Cup Group B match against England, a leading official said on Sunday.

Kolkata was dropped on Thursday after an International Cricket Council inspection team said Eden Gardens was under-prepared due to a delay in renovation work.

"The BCCI has recommended Bangalore as an alternative venue (for the Feb. 27 match)," said secretary N. Srinivasan in a statement.
