HYDERABAD/KOLKATA: The BCCI has put Eden Gardens on standby in case Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) is unable to host the one-off Test against Bangladesh from February 8.
Like most other state associations, the HCA too is in midst of crisis and is currently in the process of amending its constitution as per the Justice RM Lodha panel’s guidelines before holding fresh elections.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) was keen to play the Test in Kolkata, which is like a second home to their players who enjoy considerable support at the venue. The match was allotted to Hyderabad in keeping with the BCCI’s rotation policy.
A final picture will emerge only after the new three-member committee is constituted on January 19 to run BCCI affairs till the Lodha panel recommendations are implemented and elections held, both at the state as well as Board levels.
