India grounds cause ICC headache
Bombay's Wankhede Stadium
Bombay's Wankhede Stadium
Two India grounds have advertising deals that conflict with International Cricket Council rules surrounding the Champions Trophy, it has emerged.

This year's tournament is to be played in October in three Indian cities.

But two of them - Delhi and Mumbai (Bombay) have existing corporate contracts which encroach upon the ICC's requirement of signage-free grounds.

ICC boss Malcolm Speed said: "Venues must be free of advertising signage to protect our sponsors' rights."

Sharad Pawar, president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, has had an initial meeting with Speed to discuss the issue.

The third Indian venue, Calcutta's vast Eden Gardens, is not affected.
