During the match against Sri Lanka and the Indian cricket team, there was a unique way to dry the pitch that became a joke on social media.
In the Indian city of Guwahati, India and Sri Lanka had the first match of the Twenty20 series, but after the toss, it could not be played due to rain.
The rain affected the outfield and pitch of the ground and, surprisingly, the Indian Cricket Board, which owns Rs 24,000 crore, discovered a new way to dry the pitch.
