“There’s a few period between when the judgement is revealed …. we were keen to have it well before the beginning of the World Cup,” ICC chief executive says on Saturday.

The WC begins in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh on Feb .. 19 and ICC chief said the subcontinent is going to be ready, however 5 cricket grounds have yet to be finalized.

The last is scheduled to be played at Mumbai’s on April 2, however the location continues to be a building site.

Complaint of the poor structure was similar to the accumulation to the New Delhi Commonwealth Games, when authorities raced to the last second to get ready venues and accommodation.
