A ground staff said that the track used for the game between Railways and Punjab was quite dangerous, but they have prepared some new tracks for the upcoming games.
“The track was looking dangerous,” a ground staff on the condition of anonymity said, as quoted by News18.
“We have prepared a different track and the other rounds can take place at the venue. Let’s see what happens.”
