Ranchi. A three-match Test series is being played between India and South Africa. The third match of the series is to be played at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi. The match is to be played from October 19, both teams were seen practicing on October 17, two days before the match. The South African cricketer looked somewhat annoyed about the hotel after reaching Ranchi. Both teams reached Ranchi on 16 October, after which the South African cricketers faced some problems.
The South African team is stationed at Hotel Le-Lac, away from the stadium. The Indian team is staying in Radisson Blu. BCCI had to make arrangements at Hotel Le-Lac due to the booking of Hotel Radisson for a seminar long back. But the South African team is not comfortable in this hotel. On the very first day, the players’ bus got stuck at the hotel gate. Because of this, the players had to get down from the bus. JSCA officials are worried about the hotel issue for two days.
Due to the absence of a pool at the Hotel Le-Lac, the South African team has to make arrangements for the pool at the JSCA Stadium. On Thursday, South African cricketers spent a lot of time in the JSCA pool after a practice session.
