Furthermore, CAB has joined hands with Creocraft to give life to vignettes of cricket on the inside walls of the collessium. The walls of Eden will say the story behind every cricketer. It's going to be a cricketer's journey from maidan to donning the national jersey. Over 20 artists studying at Indian Art College are working day and night to paint this idea on the walls.

With the two teams set to arrive here in the next 48hours, all roads in the City of Joy lead to the Eden.
