Rajasthan Royals will play two of their IPL matches in Guwahati

GUWAHATI: Rajasthan Royals are all set to play two of their matches at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. The decision was taken at a meeting held between, IMG-Reliance (IMG-R), Rajasthan Royals and ACA (Assam Cricket Association). IMG conducted an inspection at the ACA Barsapara Stadium before giving confirmation. Profit-sharing was the reason why a change of venue to Guwahati from Ahmedabad had taken place, according to reports. It is important to note that in January India vs Sri Lanka match scheduled to be played at ACA Stadium, Barsapara had to be abandoned due to rains. The match could not take off despite repeated inspections. Groundsmen even used haird ryer, vacuum cleaners and steam iron to dry the pitch for the match. But the pitch and the ground weren’t ready. Usage of rudimentary tactics for such an important match invited criticism from people on social media. The enthusiastic spectators who braved the rains and showed up were left disappointed.
