A horrific incident unfolded at the Hyderabad Cricket Association Stadium when a big crowd was at the stadium wanting to buy tickets for the final T20 International between India and Australia. Four people were hurt in the rush that occurred at Gymkhana grounds after a large number of cricket fans swarmed there to get tickets for the third T20I clash.

It was seen that there was a long line of fans waiting to purchase tickets. However, things quickly escalated out of hand, leading to a stampede in which a large group of people interfered with law and order. In order to disperse the large throng and regain control, police had to resort to lathi charges.

After the crowd stormed outside the Hyderabad cricket stadium on September 22 leading to panic, the Hyderabad police filed a case against the Hyderabad Cricket Association on Friday. Concerning the regrettable incident, the Hyderabad Cricket Association has been charged in three suits. Sections 420, 337, and 21/76 of the City Police Act have been levied to book the cases.

Australia tour of India

Australia, meanwhile, got a head start over India in the 3-match T20I series as they registered a clinical performance at Mohali. Although the Indian batting clicked, the bowling was disappointing.  KL Rahul scored a vital half-century and brilliant innings by Suryakumar Yadav, who made a quickfire 46 from 25 balls gave the team a good start. The perfect finish was provided by Hardik Pandya, who scored a scintillating 71 from just 30 balls, which allowed India to get to a score of 208-6.

This was in vain as Cameron Green and Mathew Wade made short work of the target and India made matters worse with a shoddy show with the ball and on the field. This allowed Australia to get to the target with 4 balls to spare and helped them to start the series on a winning note.
