The spectators at the JSCA stadium on Tuesday were engaged in a deplorable act as they hurled water pouches at the Cheerleaders who had run for cover as they were worried about their safety.
The cheerleaders, who were preparing to celebrate Dhoni’s winning runs, ran to safer confines inside the stadium after the ‘missiles’ were thrown. The fans did not relent from throwing the pouches even after a second batch of cheerleaders appeared urging the crowd to show restraint.
It was not known what provoked the crowd to indulge in such condemnable act. It was the first such incident at the JSCA stadium since it hosted the first ODI between India and England in 2012 and several T20 matches.
