Wednesday 24 April 2013

Rain delayed the start of the much anticipated Pepsi IPL 6 clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians at Eden Gardens here today.

With the match coinciding with record-breaking Mumbai Indians batsman Sachin Tendulkar's 40th birthday, the build-up has been quite a fanfare.

The Cricket Association of Bengal kept a 40-lb cake in front of the sightscreen near the dressing room for Tendulkar to cut it before the match.

The Indian board, though, will make the payments on pro-rata basis, which will depend on the duration of the player’s availability during the season.
CoA curtails BCCI office-bearers powers severely
