Former England cricket team captain and commentator Naseer Hussain took a dig at the low attendance at the World Cup 2023 opener at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The Cricket World Cup 2023 started at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad with England playing New Zealand in the first match.
New Zealand asked England to bat first in the World Cup 2023 opener which set a target of 283.
This surprised fans around the world who flooded social media platforms to express their feelings.
The fans were disappointed at what they perceived as a lacklustre start to cricket's premier event.
Similarly, former English captain Naseer Hussain was also frustrated which he expressed through a post on X as soon as his home side finished the innings.
Despite early loss of wickets, England has managed to score more runs than the number of crowd present in the stadium.#ENGvNZ— Naseer Hussain (@Naseercricket) October 5, 2023
