Ganguly commended the ICC and BCCI for their excellent selection of World Cup venues, although some traditional centers such as Mohali and Nagpur were overlooked.

"It's a great schedule and the allocation of the matches has been fantastic. BCCI and ICC have done a great job to give correct matches to correct venues and I know it is going to be a tremendous World Cup. I know how BCCI organises the IPL, they will make it a spectacle," he said.
