  • No music in dressing room for India’s T20 game

    The India-England women’s T20 at Hove today, the rare sporting event in Britain that hasn’t been impacted by the passing away of Queen Elizabeth II, is expected to be a low-key affair.

    It is learnt that the visiting Indian team has been asked to avoid playing music in the dressing room since England is mourning the demise of its longest-serving monarch. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) flag at the venue will also be at half-mast.

    Those in the know say that there will be no commercial activity allowed inside the stadium, however, there was no restriction on how the players celebrate their success on the field.

    While the women’s game was going ahead as per itinerary, the England and Wales Cricket Board had paused the ongoing England-South Africa Test involving the men’s team. Thursday’s first day in London was washed out without a ball bowled. The game will now resume on Saturday.

    Other sporting events too took a break to pay their respect to Queen Elizabeth II, The English Premier League’s weekend games were also postponed and so was the European Tour golf and Tour of Britain cycling.

    The Indian women’s team are on a two week tour to England where they will be playing three T20I’s and three ODI’s.

    After Saturday’s game, there will be two more T20 games at Derby (September 13) and Bristol (September 15). The ODIs are scheduled at Hove (September 18), Canetrbury (September 21) and the Lord’s (September 24).
