Kolkata, Apr 21 (UNI) The West Bengal Government today announced that a three-member committee would probe the mismanagement in the Eden Gardens during the Indian Premier League cricket match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Challengers.

''The committee would look into the causes of the sudden disruption in power supply which halted play for 31 minutes as well as the inadequate supply of drinking water,'' Sports Minister Subhash Chakraborty said.

He said the committee would submit its report before the next IPL match at the Eden Gardens to be held on April 29,'' he said.

Criticising the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), Mr Chakraborty said the lapses occurred due to the inexperience of CAB officials. The CAB also failed to coordinate with the state overnment which could have made the arrangements foolproof, he alleged.

The proposed committee would comprise an official each from police, PWD and the Sports department, the Minister said.
