The 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League has only completed a week but has managed to get a lot of attention. While of the attention quota has been taken by the thrilling on-field action, there are a few concerns that are troubling the organizers and the players. Recently, the shoe flinging incident in Chennai saw the matches being shifted out of the venue. Now, another venue, Hyderabad, saw the players getting disturbed by a major concern.

The venue of Hyderabad has been an iconic one in the country. The Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium has been hosting the domestic and the international matches for a very long time. Also, it is one of the better venues in the country when it comes to hosting of the IPL matches. This season, the home side – Sunrisers Hyderabad – have already played a couple of matches at the venue.

As per the reports in Sportskeeda, the mosquito menace has stung the venue. Players from the Sunrisers camp were seen calling for the mosquito racquets, mosquito repellants, and the other ointments during the matches.

MI, RR camps left unimpressed

The SRH team recently beat the Mumbai Indians at the venue to register their second win of the season. Players from the MI camp were also left unimpressed with the mosquito attacks. One of the players from the MI camp noted that things could get as worse as malaria if this menace is not dealt with in the times to come in the tournament.

Furthermore, earlier, the players of Rajasthan Royals had also submitted a negative feedback of the venue owing to the same concerns. The SRH camp had played their first match of the season at the same venue against the Royals. It will be worth watching how the organizers deal with this situation for the future fixtures.
