Jay Shah under hot waters again! Bird poo-filled seats fail HCA World Cup preparations
Poor seats at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium as Jay Shah and HCA come under fire
With just a day remaining before the start of the World Cup, some of the seats at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium are in horrible shape. With bird litter splattered all over the seats, it presents a poor picture for the fans who will travel to the stadium to watch 3 crucial World Cup games.
- Virat Kohli away on a 4-month sabbatical from ODIs, T20s
- 4 players in race for India’s keeper-batter slots in T20 WC
- Suryakumar Yadav set to break Virat Kohli’s T20I record for India
A total of three matches are slated to be held at Hyderabad. But the sorry state of the seats at the Uppal Stadium can cause a massive headache for the BCCI. With poor sitting conditions and bird litter scattered all over the seats, it is a huge problem for the stadium management and fans.
With just 2 days remaining, the stadium staff will have to turn their focus on cleaning the seats and making them habitable for fans to sit and enjoy the matches.
Hyderabad apart from hosting the three World Cup matches has also hosted 2 World Cup warm-up matches. These poor seating conditions have reportedly brought out the rage of the fans who are blaming Jay Shah for the poor condition of the stadiums.
The Pakistan Cricket Team is currently staying in Hyderabad and has played both their warmup matches at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium. Babar Azam and Co took on New Zealand in their first game and are currently playing against Australia in the second preparatory game of the tournament.
As for the Indian cricket team, the Men in Blue failed to play a single World Cup warmup match as rain played spoilsport. Both the games against England and Netherlands were washed off at Guwahti and Trivandrum. The main tournament kicks off on 5th October as England take on New Zealand in Ahmedabad.
World Cup matches at Hyderabad
