Just a day before the ODI World Cup 2023, images of dirty seats at the Rajeev Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad have surfaced on social media. C Venkatesh, a cricket writer, analyst, and commentator, shared several photos and videos showing the spectator seats filled with bird droppings, where the warm-up match between Australia and Pakistan took place on Tuesday. He wrote, ”Nothing much has changed in Uppal stadium. Only some window dressing and spectator comfort still not taken care of in full”. After many users questioned him over the authenticity of the pictures, he shared another image to prove his claim. He also shared a video of the condition of the seats amidst the ongoing match. He later clarified that the dirty seats were only present in the Western Terrace while the rest of the stadium has been renovated and has new seats. He wrote, ”My tweets on bad condition of seats in some stands of the Uppal Stadium have gone viral. Some people outside the country are trying to take advantage. I would like to clarify that the stadium has been renovated with brand new seats & only Western Terrace stands old seats are bad.” Many cricket fans shared their disappointment with the Board of Control for Cricket in India and slammed the authorities for their negligence. Notably, Hyderabad hosted two of the ten warm-up matches ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
