Jagmohan Dalmiya on Thursday launched a broadside on International Cricket Council (ICC) president Sharad Pawar for his role in taking away the India-England World Cup match from Eden Gardens.

"It is not cricket," the president of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) said.

He said Pawar had been part of the decision-making team at ICC that agreed to take the match away a day after a final inspection at the venue found it not ready. "If the ICC deadlines for finishing stadiums were strictly adhered to, then few stadiums would be hosting matches right now," Dalmiya said.

"The less said of Wankhede the better," he added of Pawar's home stadium in Mumbai.
