West Bengal Governor M K Narayanan on Saturday expressed regret at the shifting away of India-England World Cup tie from the Eden Gardens by ICC on grounds of unpreparedness and said he did not think that the match could be brought back.

"Eden Gardens is next to Lord's," Narayanan told reporters on the sidelines of a women's cricket match at Salt Lake here, adding that it was a loss for cricket lovers that the match was shifted from Eden Gardens.

Narayanan said that it was almost too late for the match to be brought back to Eden Gardens.

"I think it is almost too late. They (ICC) have already taken a decision. Anyway, lets see," he added.
