To regular invasions, we have seen a lot of things happening on a cricket pitch.
But nothing beats the richest cricket board in the world, taking the help of hairdryers, irons and vacuum cleaners to dry the pitch.
Yeah, last night at Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati, people were sitting on the ground with hairdryers trying to take off the moisture so that India's first T20 against Sri Lanka could start.
It didn't. Guess why?
Well, because it's a goddamn cricket ground. Not a cotton T-shirt.
But the sight of hairdryers and Virat Kohli looking back in this picture is just...iconic. Twitter agrees.
Low quality covers , hair dryers & electric Iron to dry the pitch were on display at #Guwahati #INDvsSL— s tanwar (@sushtany) January 6, 2020
Shameful for the richest board @BCCI
Just a case of mis management & taking things for granted.
Who cares about the spectators any way.
Imagine richest [email protected] doesnt have latest pitch drying equipment like other boards. A man was drying the pitch with a “hairdryer”. Even my hair which is so short takes 15 mins to dry. Imagine the pitch.! Embarrassing! World was watching. #INDvsSL— Behroze Telang. (@motherrr) January 5, 2020
Are you serious?? Using hair dryer and iron to dry the pitch?? Looks like world's richest cricket board @BCCI never heard of "Hover Cover" to dry the pitch. We are in the year 2020 for god's sake @SGanguly99. Please spare some fund @KirenRijiju ji 🙏 #INDvsSL pic.twitter.com/EN6z1vVPOs— DS (@IForRealDS) January 5, 2020
