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.
