Fans question dirty seats across stadiums in India

India Women have extended their lead in the one-off Test against Australia, finishing Day 2 at 376/7 and establishing a lead of 157 runs. The dominant performance by the Women in Blue was highlighted by Deepti Sharma’s unbeaten 70 off 147 balls and Pooja Vastrakar’s resilient innings with a score of 33* off 115.

In a surprising move, the Maharashtra Cricket Association provided free entry to all fans at the Wankhede Stadium to witness the game. However, despite the free entry, fans in the stands expressed frustration due to unclean and dirty seats.

A video of the Wankhede Stadium went viral on social media, showcasing the dirty and poorly maintained seats, bringing attention to the hygiene issues at the venue.

This is not an isolated incident, as similar complaints about stadium cleanliness were raised during the World Cup 2023 hosted by India. Fans across different stadiums posted videos showing unclean seats, some with bird droppings, raising concerns about hygiene.

Even during warm-up matches at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium, fans posted about the subpar conditions of the seats.

In Ahmedabad, during a match between England and New Zealand, a fan shared a video highlighting ‘dirty seats,’ adding to the growing concerns.

Despite being the richest cricket board (BCCI), hygiene concerns persist in stadiums across the country, leaving fans disappointed. The recurring problem has sparked an outcry on social media, with fans expressing their displeasure over the inadequate stadium conditions.

The situation underscores the urgent need for improved stadium maintenance and hygiene standards, especially in cricket-loving nations like India. As fans endure substandard conditions in the stands, there is a growing call for authorities, including the BCCI, to address and rectify the hygiene issues to enhance the overall fan experience.
