A massive fire breaks out at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata before the ODI World Cup 2023

During the preparations for the upcoming ODI World Cup 2023, a fire broke out in the dressing room of Eden Gardens in Kolkata. On Wednesday late at night, a fire broke out in the steam room of Eden's single-story dressing room. Workers immediately told the security guards when they saw smoke coming out of the room. However, the fire was doused after half an hour of slogging, but the steam room was partially burned.
The secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal, Debabrata Das, reached the spot to check the situation and assured that the incident would be investigated. The ICC representatives were satisfied to see the renovation work, and to add to it, another inspection is expected to take place next month because of this recent setback at Eden Gardens.
The Eden Gardens are going to host the five matches, including the high-voltage semi-final 2, scheduled to be played on November 16. Apart from the knockout match, the games between England and Pakistan and India and South Africa are the other games that will be taking place at this iconic venue. The Indian team will start their World Cup campaign against five-time winners Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday, October 8. The highly anticipated game between India and Pakistan has been rescheduled as per the ICC's latest update. The high-octane clash will now take place on Sunday, November 19, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
