The ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 is set to begin in India, with the finalists of the 2019 edition, England and New Zealand, set to face off each other on October 5 in Ahmedabad. 

During a warm-up match between Pakistan and Netherlands yesterday in the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, where the Men in Green faced Australia, fans were allowed entry into the venue. However, their experience was tainted by subpar seating arrangements within the stadium. 

Pictures shared by C. Venkatesh, a user on the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter), showcased a disarray of untidy seats, prompting widespread dismay and criticism.


This is for those, who said I had posted an old or fake pic. I’m very present at the ground.



Netizens took to social media to express their discontentment, directing their criticisms towards the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the organizing body, and the host nation, India. 

Critics labeled it a disgrace on the part of the BCCI for failing to ensure that the seating arrangements were in proper order.


Disappointment from BCCI this is not good for world cup hosting country, if you want to host world cup alone you have to improve all your stadium and seats too.#Hyderabadi #CWC23 #CWC2023 #cwc25 #ODIWorldCup2023 #ODIWorldCup #WorldCup #ICCWorldCup #ICCCricketWorldCup #AsianGames
