India vs Bangladesh, Indore test: fans invade Holkar stadium on day 1

INDORE: Who says Cricket test no longer attracts the crowd to the stands? Well, at least never in Indore. Here, if it is cricket, it will surely be a coincidence. Hours before the start of the game, cricket fans began to make a straight line outside Holkar Stadium on Day 1 of the India-Bangladesh Test on Thursday. From the throwing to the first ball, the Indo-citizens didn't want to miss anything that happened in the 22 yards.

In the midst of enhanced security, cricket enthusiasts arrived at their place when the stadium doors opened at 7:30 a.m. Songs of ' virat Kohli ',' India-India ',' Bharat Mata ki Jai 'reverberated the stadium from the beginning. And as Bangladeshi hitters rushed back to the pavilion, the ecstasy of the crowd increased more.

I thought India would hit first and leave Kohli's later batting. But, as Bangladesh decided to hit first, I returned after lunch. It was a phenomenal bowling game by fishermen, said university student Tanishka Shukla.

Following the concept of 3R (reuse, reduce and recycle), the use of disposable plastic bottles and water bags was strictly prohibited inside the stadium and more than 100 workers from Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) had been deployed inside the stadium to perform cleaning work at regular intervals. The workers also took the opportunity to take a look at the game from time to time.

The cabinet minister for higher education, sports and youth affairs, Jitu Patwari, and the state interior minister, Bala Bachchan, were also seen among the spectators. The judges, additional SP among other dignitaries also took some time from their hectic schedule to witness the Indian Team game.
