Fire Breaks Out at Eden Gardens, Damages Dressing Room

Fire breaks out at Eden Gardens

In a startling event, the renowned Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata faced a fire outbreak on Wednesday, August 9, in the evening.

As the iconic home to Bengal Cricket, Eden Gardens is currently undergoing significant renovations in anticipation of the upcoming ODI World Cup in October.

Thankfully, the incident, which occurred late in the night, didn’t result in any injuries. On a side note, fans are buzzing with excitement as Eden Gardens might host a thrilling India vs. Pakistan semifinal in the World Cup, provided both teams make it to the semifinals.

Fire breaks out at Eden Gardens

A short circuit seems to be the culprit behind the recent fire in one of Eden Gardens’ dressing rooms. As the stadium gets a makeover for the ODI World Cup, this hiccup thankfully didn’t cause significant damage. However, the stadium’s management isn’t taking the incident lightly. Firefighters were swiftly on the scene to ensure things didn’t escalate. Unfortunately, a few personal items in the dressing room were lost, but the silver lining is that nobody was directly affected by the blaze.

While the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) hasn’t publicly commented on the recent fire incident, insiders say they’re on track to prep the venue by September 15. Word has it that CAB officials are closely examining the fire’s cause and doubling down on precautions to prevent future mishaps. On a brighter note, the ICC gave a thumbs up to the stadium’s preparations. Just last week, the ICC team was in India, giving a once-over to all the World Cup venues, including those for the warm-up games. Everything seems to be shaping up nicely!

Eden Gardens Action

Kolkata’s gearing up for a cricket fiesta with five matches slated for the ODI World Cup. If the cards play out right, and India goes head-to-head with Pakistan, this city’s where the action will be for the semifinal. Fans are especially amped for the India vs. South Africa showdown on Sunday, November 5 – it’s going to be epic! But let’s not forget the other big games: England locking horns with Pakistan, Netherlands taking on Bangladesh, and a Pakistan vs. Bangladesh face-off. The cricketing fever will kick off in Kolkata on Saturday, October 28.
