Moderate crowd turn up in 3rd ODI
Mohali: The crucial third ODI between India and England on Thursday failed to draw a big crowd at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium here, the third time in the ongoing series which saw lack of spectator interest.
Most of the stands in the 28,000-capacity stadium wore a deserted look during the England innings, despite the match could be the series decider.
While the PCA officials had been claiming since past week that most of the tickets have been sold, the ground situation was quite different with less than 20,000 watching the match and a large number of seats remaining vacant.
Sunny Chaudary, a die hard cricket fan, said he was at the PCA Stadium to watch the Indian youngsters without the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh against English players at home conditions.
India had beaten England in the first two ODIs of the five-match series in Hyderabad and New Delhi.
