Kolkata: Nov 13, 2011
In another goof-up, the Cricket Association of Bengal has printed wrong timing of the second Test match between India and West Indies in the match tickets issued to spectators as well as media.
Test and first-class matches normally begin at 9 am in the venue, located in the eastern region of India, but for some mysterious reasons, the CAB has printed 9.30 am as start time.
When inquired, CAB refused to admit the mistake and claimed the match was earlier scheduled to begin at 9.30 am, which appeared ridiculous.
"There will be an advertisement in tomorrow's newspaper about the start timing. It was not a mistake as earlier the match was supposed to begin at 9.30am," CAB joint secretary Biswarup Dey said.
On Saturday, the low sightscreens problem had once again cropped up when Sachin Tendulkar expressed his unhappiness over the height before CAB readily agreed and raised the height by five feet. (PTI)
