The Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) is the main body overseeing cricketing activities in India including the domestic tournaments and maintenance of stadiums. It is one of the richest cricketing bodies in the world. Some cricket stadiums in India are owned by state cricket associations as well as some private organizations.
All cricket associations are managed and run by the BCCI as they are funded by the body. The state associations are linked to the BCCI and the management of the stadiums and their maintenance is looked after by these state associations. The BCCI sends financial support to these associations to provide facilities like broadcasting rights, ticket sales, sponsorships, and government grants.
Ultimately, it’s the BCCI that oversees all these affairs including the maintenance of stadiums in the respective states. The BCCI is the principal body that looks after all the administration work, financial matters, maintenance of stadiums as well as the pitches.
Patna Stadium’s condition hosting Mumbai vs Bihar Ranji Trophy game surprises Internet
However, the condition of the stadium in Bihar where the Ranji Trophy match between Mumbai and Bihar is being played has surprised fans as well as the entire cricketing circuit. Recently, images of the stadium went viral on social media when Mumbai was playing Bihar in the Ranji Trophy game.
Out of Context Cricket shared the video on its social media platform X with a caption that reads, ” The condition of the Moin Ul Haq stadium in Patna, where Mumbai versus Bihar Ranji Match is scheduled for tomorrow”. The condition of the stadium looks pathetic.
There are a lot of plants that have grown at the entrance of the stadium. There hasn’t been any renovation lately due to which the stadium has lost its charm. The Ranji Trophy is one of the oldest and the most historic cricketing tournaments in India and the BCCI should try to resolve this issue at the earliest.
