The fourth T20 match between India and Australia was played at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur. India won the match by 20 runs. But do you know that the fourth T20 at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium was played not on electricity but on generator and power backup?
According to a Times of India report, the site’s electricity connection was cut off five years ago due to outstanding bills of around Rs 3.1 billion. During the match, the Chhattisgarh State Cricket Association provided a generator costing Rs 1.4 crore.
The game, which takes place in the light room, requires around 1,000 kW of electricity, 600 kW of which is for the floodlight system alone. Apart from that, around 435 kW of power is needed to run other things. We would like to inform you that the site received electricity connection in 2010, but it was switched off in 2018 due to outstanding bills.
