Local media in India say that the event happened at exactly midnight on Wednesday when the ground staff saw smoke coming from the away team’s changing room, which was being renovated outside. After that, the fire was put out by the right people at the right time.
The ICC and BCCI sent teams to check out the famous ground last week. It is one of the 10 sites for the 13th World Cup.
The Eden Gardens will host the second semi-final of the main event. It will be used for the first time on October 28 when Bangladesh plays Netherlands. Three days after that, the Tigers will play Pakistan at the same place. On November 5 and 11, India will play South Africa, and on November 11, England will play Pakistan.
