With the army giving the go-ahead, the decks have been cleared for naming six Eden Gardens stands after eminent personalities involved with the game in the state including former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly and late cricket administrator Jagmohan Dalmiya, a Cricket Association of Bengal official said here on Thursday.

The four others stands will be christened after ex cricketer Pankaj Roy and former CAB presidents B.N. Dutt, A.N. Ghosh and Snehasnshu Acharya.

Disclosing this, CAB president Sourav Ganguly said: “We received the permission from the defence authorities today (Thursday). We will complete the work as early as possible”.

The proposal had been passed in the CAB working committee meeting last year.

But with the army being the custodian of the Maidan, where the Eden Gardens is located, its permission is mandatory before any such decisions can be implemented.
