Pataudi Lecture to be held on October 19

Kolkata: The third edition of the annual Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi Memorial Lecture will be held here on October 19, on the eve of the India-West Indies fifth ODI.

"Both the teams are expected to land here on October 18 and the next day would be ideal to host the lecture," CAB treasurer Biswarup Dey told reporters today.

Dey said he was unaware who would deliver the annual lecture which will be held at the team hotel.

"The Board will announce it in due course, we're not yet informed about this," he said.

Anil Kumble delivered the second edition of the lecture, while legendary Sunil Gavaskar was the speaker of the inaugural edition.

This will incidentally be a part of the Eden Garden's 150th year celebrations, which will kick off with the release of a book written by former Bengal captain Raju Mukherjee on October 18.

The book chronicles the iconic stadium's 150-year history.
