Kolkata, March 9 (IANS) Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday said he believes organising an India-Pakistan encounter is easier than playing in one.
“Organising is easier than playing in an India-Pak encounter,” the former India captain told reporters here.
ICC CEO Dave Richardson announced at a media conference in New Delhi on Wednesday that the India-Pakistan World Twenty 20 tie will now be played in the Eden Gardens here instead of Dharamsala.
Asked about the pitch at the Eden Gardens, Ganguly said: “It will be a pata (flat) wicket.”
Ganguly had featured in 53 One-Day internationals against Pakistan and scored 1,652 runs at an average of 35.14.
