Just around a fortnight ago, the BCCI and their president Sourav Ganguly had faced the flak from the fans after the Guwahati T20I between India and Sri Lanka was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to poor arrangement in the ground. While the start of the match was interrupted by rain, the showers did not last long.

The ground staff had also covered the playing area in time. However, when they lifted the covers after the rain stopped, they found out that water had leaked on the pitch. The ground staff came up with several measures including the usage of hair dryers and steam-irons but nothing worked and the match had to be abandoned.

The furious fans as well as some former cricketers had criticised the arrangement at the ground. Well, the BCCI and the BCCI president are facing the heat once again after Cricket Australia, on Thursday, posted a clip on Twitter, showing four elderly women preparing the pitch for the upcoming second ODI between India and Australia. The ladies were seen on their hands and knees vigorously cleaning the pitch with brushes.

The Indian fans were not all impressed with what they saw and they did not take long to slam Sourav Ganguly and BCCI for the working condition that is on offer in Rajkot Stadium.

Here are some of the reactions:

Meanwhile, India will be desperate to win the upcoming game in order to keep the three-match series alive. The Men in Blue are trailing in the series after losing the series-opener by ten wickets. Australia thoroughly outplayed India to register their biggest win over the hosts in India in terms of wickets. Asked to bat first, India were all out for a modest 255. In reply, Australia chased down the total inside 38 overs without losing any wicket thanks to centuries from David Warner and Aaron Finch.
