India vs Australia: Two Protesters Invade Sydney Cricket Ground During 1st ODI With Placards Against Adani Project

Two Protesters Invade Sydney Cricket Ground During 1st ODI With Placards Against Adani Project

India vs Australia 1st game of the three-match ODI series was hit with a controversial instance. The game is being played at Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. Both the teams are giving a tough fight to each other as far as the game is concerned. So far nothing much has happened in the game. But, still, it has hogged the spotlight after a couple of protesters entered the ground before they were escorted out by the security guards out of the ground.

The series opener saw some of the fans returning to the ground and it was one of the best things to watch. But, who knew that this might give an air to the controversy. Adani Group has been brought under the scanner by the people after the State Bank Of India proposed $1 billion loan to coal mining giant Adani. And, the protesters that reached the ground had placards in their hands.

India vs Australia 1st ODI Hit With A Controversial Instance

The fans also raised their voice before the 1st ODI kicked-off. A small group of fans hooted against Adani Group on the outskirts sharing their message across the globe. The controversial instance happened in the 7th over of the match before Indian pacer Navdeep Saini was going to bowl his over.

The protesters were quite quick to reach the ground as they easily breach the on-ground security. And, the guards were quite slow to interrupt and escort those protesters out of the ground.

Coming onto the game, Australia won the toss and elected to bat first. The hosts got off the mark with a dream opening stand and the Indian bowlers have so far failed to grab their first wicket. At the moment, Australia has managed 126 runs without the loss of a wicket. Aaron Finch has amassed 61* runs and David Warner is playing at 51*.

Here are some clips of Protesters:
