IND vs SA Electricity bill of Rs 2.5 crore due on this greenfield Cricket stadium first T20



  • India will play T20 series with South Africa before the World Cup
  • First T20 match to be played on 28 September at Greenfield Stadium
  • Greenfield stadium has not paid the outstanding electricity bill

IND vs SA: All the teams have started preparing for the T20 World Cup. Many teams including India have announced their squads. Before the World Cup, almost all the countries are preparing by playing T20 series. India will also play a three-match T20I series against Australia and South Africa before the World Cup. Both these series are very important for the preparations for the World Cup. But the first T20 match against South Africa is in danger of being canceled.

Clouds of danger hover over the match

The Indian team has started preparing for the T20 World Cup to be held this year. The Indian team also has to play a three-match T20 series against South Africa. The first match of the series is to be played at the majestic Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. Ahead of the match, the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is worried about the outstanding electricity bill. The majestic Greenfield Stadium is all set to host the visiting South African cricket team for the first T20 cricket match against India. But the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) has cut power supply for non-payment of bills. According to the schedule, the first match of the three series is starting from 28 September here.

With KSEB dues of Rs 2.50 crore, the Kerala Water Authority is also threatening to shut down the water supply. If seen, due to the poor financial condition, the owners of the stadium have faced difficulties. The corona epidemic has also played an important role in this.

The Kerala Cricket Association (KCA), is hosting the mega event where a record crowd of around 50,000 spectators is expected. But before the match, KCA has expressed concern over these problems. After the power failure of the stadium, a meeting was called to review it. KCA is hopeful that things will get sorted out and power will be restored soon. Because, KCA expects the intervention of the state government.

So far, the Greenfield stadium has hosted four T20 Internationals in which India have a 3-1 winning record. The home team lost in the last match against West Indies here. Talking about the stadium, it was established for the 2015 National Games.
