Organizers of the Cricket World Cup are working overtime to ensure timely completion of two Indian venues which have been lagging behind in construction.

Work is on at a frenetic pace at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Eden Gardens in Calcutta just weeks ahead of the tournament starting on Feb. 19.

The playing area isn't a concern at either venue, but a lot has had to be done in adhering to International Cricket Council standards for special areas, seating and other facilities for spectators.

Mumbai hosts two matches on March 13 and 17 and the final on April 2.

Calcutta will host its first match on Feb. 27, followed by three more matches.
