Kolkata has been facing severe thunderstorms with winds blowing at a speed of 60 kmph on Saturday, causing some damage at Eden Gardens.
The squall shattered the glass covers of the press box at the stadium, while a few hoardings and the cover were also blown away by the thunderstorm.
A CAB official said the "damages were minor" and will not affect their preparation for the two IPL playoffs scheduled to be played there.
"We still have two days in between. Everything will be ready and the press box glass will be fixed in time," said an official.
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly also visited the venue after the thunderstorm to take stock of the situation.
The weather, however, delayed the Gujarat Titans flight.
"Air operation was suspended for close to one and half hours during the squall and GT flight might have got delayed because of this," an ATC official told PTI.
The flight, which had a scheduled landing at 5pm, reportedly went over the Bangladesh air space and finally landed after a two-hour delay.
"The players were scared but everyone landed safely and checked into the team hotel," said an official.
