Alongside Eden Gardens, matches will also be held at the JU Salt Lake campus ground, Videocon Cricket Academy ground (at Salt Lake) and the CCFC, subject to its availability. “As for the fourth venue here, our first preference will be the CCFC subject to its availability,” CAB president Avishek Dalmiya said.

Bengal, placed in Group B, will begin their Ranji campaign from January 13 versus Tripura. Kerala, Haryana, Rajasthan and Vidarbha are Bengal’s other opponents in the group. All Group B matches will be played in Bangalore.

The season gets underway for Bengal on November 4 with their Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy opener versus Chhattisgarh in Guwahati.
