Bengal seeks to change Ranji's ties with Eden

KOLKATA: The Bengal team management is eager to change its two remaining local matches Eden Gardens . This thought was basically learned to fit the purpose of the local team.

Bengal will be losing Ishan Porel after the Gujarat match, as the pacemaker will fly with India's 'A' side for the New Zealand series.

With little chance that veteran Ashok Dinda will be included in the squad, team management wants to change his game plan. Instead of an attack driven by the pace they have depended on so far, they are now thinking about opting for a rotating alternative.

As it will now be difficult to make a turn at Eden, the idea is to play at Bengal Cricket Academy (BCA) in Kalyani or on the second JU campus in Salt Lake.

Yes, we have requested a change of venue. I hope we get it. Arun Lal , coach, confirmed on Thursday.

However, although there is no problem changing the venue for the next home match against Hyderabad from January 19, it is still not clear whether their next match against Delhi could be staged away from Eden Gardens.

This is because the Bengal-Delhi party is scheduled to be broadcast live and, therefore, the broadcaster should also accept this change. According to reports, the CAB is also trying to negotiate with broadcasters.
