The city of Hyderabad hosted the first ODI between India and New Zealand at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium. India won the game even after a late New Zealand comeback courtesy of Michael Bracewell's blitzkreig.

But even after such a great game of cricket, the spectators were still left disappointed because of the lack of basic amenities at the stadium. Some of the spectators who went for the India and New Zealand game at the stadium expressed their disappointment at the facilities provided to them by the Hyderabad board and the BCCI. There were complaints regarding clean washrooms, less water and basic hygeine issues as well that some of the spectators reported.

After the game, a few supporters took to social media to express their regret regarding this scenario. One user on reddit wrote, "Public toilets are cleaner than those at the stadium. Most of the toilets didn’t flush, only one of the three basins worked, and the other was clogged to the brim with all kinds of things. The washroom resembled a mini swimming pool".

Such things are not expected at all from the state board and the BCCI who charge the fans a lot of money for the match. Basic amenities like this are required for such high profile matches where top international cricket players have come to play.

Sonia Kadamandla who went for the game complained that one of the LED screens was not functioning at all at the eastern side. She added that, “At one point, amid the cheering, people began shouting ‘We want water’”.

Amid the controversy, cricket fans would hope for a better scenario in terms of facilities whenever an international match is hosted in the future ahead.
