Nagpur, 23 September: Rohit Sharma’s team India tied the series 1-1 against Australia by winning the match in Nagpur. But the people of Nagpur are disappointed as this match is only 8-8 overs. International matches have been organized in Nagpur after about three and a half years. But the people of Nagpur who were sitting in the stadium since evening were worried whether this match will happen or not. But in the end at 9.30 the first ball of the match was bowled.

Curator, Groundsman True Hero

Although Akshar Patel and Rohit Sharma were the heroes of the Indian victory, the groundsmen of Vidarbha Cricket Association worked hard to start the match and finish it smoothly. It has been raining heavily in Nagpur for the past few days. So the outfield was quite wet at this Vidarbha Cricket Association ground. One part of the field had so many patches that the umpires could not start the game on time. Not only this, umpires Nitin Menon and Ananth Padmanabhan visited the ground four times. Finally at 8.45 it was announced that the match would be played at 9.30. Also Read – Rohit Sharma: Hitman Becomes Sixer King, World Record for Rohit in Nagpur
