Kolkata, Oct 6 (IANS) large portraits of the late Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Jagmohan Dalmiya will be placed in front of the Eden Gardens’ entrances when India take on South Africa here in the final Twenty20 international on Thursday.

“In every gate there will be large portraits of Mr. Dalmiya so that fans and spectators coming for the game can pay their last respects,” CAB treasurer Biswaroop Dey told mediapersons here on Tuesday.

 

Dalmiya, 75, died at a city hospital on September 20 after suffering massive gastrointestinal bleeding. “We have also planned to run a five-minute video on him on the giant screen at the Eden. Let’s see if we can fit it during the innings break,” Dey said. There were also plans to observe a minute’s silence in his memory before the start of the match.
