In an interview, he said that we are very happy with the five matches at Eden Gardens. We have to thank me and Jay Shah for the basketball team. I have spoken and I am sure the Bengal Cricket Association must have spoken many times about their match. Eden Gardens is a great ground. There is an audience capacity of 60-70 thousand. This is also a big role. We will take it to one lakh in the next two years. I am very happy because the World Cup is a big event and Eden has hosted big matches before.
