The final match of South Africa’s tour of India brought disappointment to everyone as rain wiped off the game. The five-match T20I series ended in a draw, with the scoreline reading 2-2. The trophy was shared between the two teams. The fans at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium had to return without the cricketing action.

During the game, the fans experienced a lot of discomfort due to poor infrastructure. Pictures and videos of water pouring into the stands through shattered roofs went viral on social media on Sunday as rain ruined the final match.

Cricket fans in Bangalore waited patiently for play to restart, only to be disappointed when it did not. Furthermore, the faulty roof problem made it tough for supporters to face the rain and wait for play to resume.

“What was even more disappointing was the state of affairs inside the stadium! The richest board in the world and these are the kind of conditions their fans need to put up with! When will @BCCI @kscaofficial1 improve fan experience befitting the stature of the sport??” wrote a Twitter user, also sharing a video of water leaking through the damaged roof.

Here is the tweet

A fan posted photographs of wet seats and a holes in the ceiling of the stands in another viral tweet. “World class facilities, folks!” he sarcastically wrote in his tweet.

On the other hand, Indian Cricket Board’s secretary Jay Shah has encouraged state associations to ensure that fans get their money’s worth, emphasizing that the money raised from the Indian T20 League media rights auction will be utilized to strengthen domestic cricket, build infrastructure, and enhance fan viewing experiences.

“The Indian Cricket Board will utilize the revenue generated from IPL to strengthen our domestic cricket structure starting from grassroots, to boost infrastructure and spruce up facilities across India and enrich the overall cricket-watching experience,” Jay Shah had said earlier this month.
