Vastavam web: The Services Sports Control Board (SSCB) today barred general spectators from entering the Airforce ground, a day after an intruder drove his car onto the pitch during the Ranji Trophy match between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.After facing a lot of embarrassment due to the security breach, the Services authorities today swung to action.Only journalists with valid BCCI central accreditation card were allowed. In fact, one spectator jokingly produced his Aadhar Card at the gate,” a DDCA official told PTI today.
On third day of the Ranji Trophy encounter, one man identifying himself as Girish Sharma had breached the security at the Airforce ground and was allegedly in an inebriated state when he drove onto the pitch with international players such as Gautam Gambhir and Ishant Sharma on the field.”I deeply apologise on behalf of my ex-husband. Shocked to see this Really sorry,” she tweeted.
Meanwhile, a DDCA official privy to functioning of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) said that this incident will have no bearing on where Delhi will play their last home game against Maharashtra from November 17–20.”Technically, we can also play at The Feroz Shah Kotla as if we don’t use the centre strip. But the decision will depend on our position in the points table after the Karnataka away game. Even Palam is in contention,” the DDCA official informed.
