Kolkata's Eden Gardens will not host the India-England World Cup tie slated for February 27 due to its unpreparedness, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said Thursday following an adverse report from the venue inspection team.

The inspection team comprising tournament director Ratnakar Shetty, members of the Central Organising Committe (COC) and the ICC reported on the readiness of five outstanding venues after visiting the facilities. The team inspected Eden Gardens Tuesday.

Eden Gardens has not been

Eden Gardens has not been rejected. They are falling back with the construction, so the ICC can't risk playing the first game there in case work is not completed. They will be hosting their remaining matches but miss out on the first game only.

Wankhede and all three Sri Lankan venues have another 14 days to complete work. Their approval is based on completing the venues within the next 14 days. They can still be be rejected if they don't.
