Social Media Trolls India for Drying Pitch With a Hair Dryer in a T20 Match Against Sri Lanka

Many bizarre moments have occurred on a cricket field but the latest event unfolding prior to the match between India and Sri Lanka on Sunday takes the cake!

The match between both teams was delayed due to rain and in order to get the match started quicker, the ground staff at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati used a hairdryer and a steam iron to dry the pitch.

These unconventional techniques did not sit well with the fans who trolled the BCCI and the Indian ground staff on social media.

Some people even drew a comparison with the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as well, when a helicopter was landed in the middle of the ground.
