Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar, who is also the co-owner of Kerala Blasters Football Club, on Tuesday, expressed concern over the decision by the Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) to host an ODI match between India and West Indies at Jawaharlal Nehru International stadium. There are also reports that the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has made a decision to shift the venue to the capital city. Prominent personalities such as Sasi Tharoor, N.S. Madhavan and players Rino Anto, Ian Hume and C.K. Vineeth had tweeted against the KCA decision to conduct the one-day global against West Indies in Kochi, when the KCA has also an option to conduct the match in Thiruvananthapuram.

Tharoor, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, spoke to BCCI Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai asking him to denounce the "bizarre" decision of the KCA to hold the match in Kochi.

"He has promised to review the matter. Hoping that neither the cricket nor the football fans are disappointed", he said.

The KCA had written to the BCCI Fixtures Committee expressing interest to host an ODI following the successful conduct of the India-New Zealand T20 match previous year.

Another Blasters player C K Vineeth said the stadium in Kochi is one of six in India that have been approved by Federation Internationale de Football Association, a certification that will take enormous effort to obtain again. After the matches of the junior World Cup, the JLN Stadium in Kochi hosted Kerala Blasters' matches in the Indian Super League (ISL).

He batted for Thiruvananthapuram to host the one-day global cricket match between India and West Indies on November 1 instead of the Jawaharlal Nehru worldwide Stadium in Kochi, which was last used for the U-17 Football World Cup.

Canadian footballer, Iain Hume who now plays as a striker for Kerala Blasters in Indian Super League vented his anger on Instagram.

"I understand there is a lot of cricket in India". He added that the passion for football was growing in the state and a new cricket stadium should be built in Kochi to conduct matches. "But I also understand that there is lot of football in Kerala".

When India has been known for being a "cricket crazy" nation, is it really necessary to dig up a football pitch to play a cricket match?
