Indian football icon Bhaichung Bhutia feels I-League matches should be held after sunset as it improves the "quality" of the game.

"If the matches are held in the night, the quality of the game improves.

Also, there is more excitement among the people if the matches are held in the night," he said.

When asked to comment on the blackout at the Yuba Bharati Krirangan during Sunday's Mohun Bagan-East Bengal derby, he said, "Sports Minister (Madan) Mitra has told me that he is looking into the matter. I hope he will look into it with due importance." pti
