The summit clash of the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) seems to not be ending anytime soon with rain consistently disturbing its flow. While the game was originally scheduled to take place on 28 May, it had to be moved to reserve day after a washout on Sunday. The game started on time and Gujarat Titans (GT) put on a massive 214/3 in their 20 overs.
But as soon as Chennai Super Kings started their chase, the rain came chasing and it was a burst at the Narendra Modi Stadium. The play had to be halted for a significant time. Meanwhile, the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) ground staff tried their best to make the ground ready for the game as soon as possible.
But more than their efforts, the types of equipment used to dry the wet pitches garnered a lot of attention. As the GCA ground staff was seen using sponges to soak the water on the pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium, fans mocked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for their ignorance towards the use of technology.
Fans set Twitter on fire with tweets mocking BCCI
Most of the fans were left shocked to see such outdated methods being used by the ground staff. A few also pointed out that it’s a shame that despite being the richest cricket board in the world, BCCI fails to lash its groundstaff with modern technology.
