Chepauk Stadium gets four new super-soppers before the IND vs. AUS World Cup clash

Despite the fact that the rain that pelted Chennai over the last week has stopped and the outlook is getting better The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association has imported four new super-soppers from Australia. This is because they don’t want to take any chances before the opening World Cup match between India and Australia. The possibility of rain on game day, according to the weather office, is only 10%. However, the week is forecast to be quite hot, which could occasionally result in showers.
The city has had heavy rain for the previous three weeks, forcing the TNCA to postpone at least three of its league games. Since the scheduled games were played on Monday, the situation during the weekend was the same. 
On Monday, with just five days till the contest, work at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, which will host four additional matches after the India vs. Australia match, was in full flow. As per the statement of a TNCA official, “We didn’t want to take any chances, so we purchased four new, advanced super-soppers for the World Cup. To ensure that we have all bases covered, we also replaced all of the previous covers with new ones, including thick ones.”
