India vs. England: A plane flies above Headingley Stadium with the message “Sack the ECB and Save Test Cricket.”
A plane with the banner “Sack the ECB and Save Test Cricket” soared over the Headingley cricket field, where a Test match between India and England is taking place, causing significant embarrassment for the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). When India was batting against England, an aircraft with a flag attached to its tail was observed flying.
So far, no information on the plane has been released. The incident allegedly occurred between the 20th and 25th overs, as Rohit Sharma and Chateshwar Pujara were on the crease.
Some cricket fans in England have been dissatisfied with the way the ECB has been operating in recent years. The Hundred tournament, which favors 100-ball cricket and therefore shortens the game for commercial interests, has also proven contentious.
A netizen reacted to the news by stating, “a plane’s just flown over Headingley saying fire the ECB and save test cricket in case you thought your da was taking the divorce well.” “That tiny plane must be fascinating at Headingley!” said another.
This is not the first time something like this has happened. During the 2019 World Cup match between India and Sri Lanka, an aircraft bearing the banner “Justice for Kashmir” soared above the Headingley stadium. As a result, the Old Trafford stadium was designated as a “No Fly Zone” for India’s quarterfinal match versus New Zealand.
India had a dismal campaign in the first innings of the third test match, being all out for 78 runs, with just Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane hitting in double figures. England, on the other hand, scored a whopping 432 runs.
Team India was cruising at 101/1 at the time this text was updated, with Rohit Sharma making 53 runs and Cheteshwar Pujara scoring 36. Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Siraj are the only players who have yet to bat.
