Kanpur, Jan 29 (Agencies): International Cricket Council (ICC) president Sharad Pawar on Saturday said that Eden’s fate as World Cup host will be known on Sunday after rejecting the plea to extend the completion deadline.

It is likely that Eden Gardens won’t host the match between India and England on February 27 as it failed to complete its renovation work on time.

The BCCI, at the behest of the Cricket Association of Bengal, appealed to the ICC to extend the completion deadline for the India-England tie to February 7 but that has been rejected by the ICC.

Pawar said he would get a report on the stadium's preparedness from ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat on Saturday and a final decision would be taken.

"I will get the report. After that, an ICC Committee will deliberate on whether Eden will host the matches or not," Pawar said here.

"Fans from other countries would also be coming to see the World Cup and they would have made their travel plans much in advance. Any last-minute change would hassle them," he added.

South Africa-Ireland (March 15), Netherlands-Ireland (March 18) and Zimbabwe-Kenya (March 20) are the other games scheduled at the venue.
