India vs England Cricket Match (ICC 2011) is moved to Bangalore from Eden Gardens.
One more slap on face of Indian sports officials for failing to deliver the scheduled work on time.
Eden Gardens in Kolkata is still not ready for hosting the Feb 27 India-England World Cup match.Now match will be played at: M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore.
Pitch Conditions: The Pitch at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore is likely to support spinners in the later part of the innings. However with the spongy bounce in the pitch fast bowler is also expected to play an important role. There is a light chance of shower expected later in the day, so team winning the toss is likely to have bat first and put runs on the board. Any score from 260 to 280 runs will be considered competitive on this wicket. [via: http://cricketvillage.blogspot.com/]
