Wankhade Stadium will be ready by Dec 31: BCCI


The BCCI dismissed media reports that repair at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium was running at the back schedule and claimed the venue would be ready in time for next year's cricket World Cup final.

Board Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty said in a statement that Wankhede Stadium will be ready by Dec 31 and there was no truth in the report that DY Patil Stadium has been reserved as a standby venue.

"As the Tournament Director of ICC Cricket World Cup-2011, I would like to place on record that the ICC Committee, keeping track of the attentiveness of the World Cup venues, is satisfied with the progress of the work at the Wankhede Stadium," Shetty said.

"The stadium would be ready by end of December 2010 which is the time limit given to Mumbai Cricket Association. The central Organising Committee of ICC Cricket World Cup-2011 has not taken any decision regarding D Y Patil ground as an altenative venue," he said.

The report has said that the Wankhede Stadium would miss the November 30 deadline and that the Cricket Board has determined to keep much-in-shape DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai as standby to avoid any last minute glitches.
