We have requested the BCCI president to provide us with better facilities," a senior Jammu and Kashmir CA official privy to the development told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

It was also learnt that Ganguly was apprised of the current situation and plans of hosting home games in Jammu.

"We expect that the home games of Jammu and Kashmir will once again be played in Jammu. We have a college ground in Jammu and we plan to upgrade and develop the facilities there so that first-class matches can be conducted," the source added.
