Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals: Bottles, Pouches Thrown From Gallery at Ranchi Stadium, Cheergirls Run for Cover
The JSCA stadium in Ranchi was put to notice after pouches and water bottles were thrown at the cheerleaders. With Ranchi having hosted several T20 matches and being Chennai Super Kings' home ground, this incident can only deter the popularity of the stadium.
Some unruly fans hurled water bottles and pouches at the cheerleaders, forcing the girls to run for cover, soon after Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni hit the winning runs against Rajasthan Royals here on Tuesday in the Indian Premier League.
The cheer girls assigned near the gallery, who were preparing to celebrate Dhoni's winning runs, ran to safety after the missiles were thrown.
The fans did not relent from throwing the pouches even after a second batch of cheer girls appeared urging the crowd for restraint.
It was the first such incident at the JSCA Stadium since it hosted the first ODI between India and England in 2012 and several T20 matches.
It was not known what provoked the crowd to throw the missiles.
