Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Cricket Association again against the minister in the incident of low attendance in the India-Sri Lanka cricket match held at Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. People don’t know that KCA organizes cricket. The understanding is that it is organized by the government. KCA President Jayesh George said that when there was negative comment from the minister’s side, there was a call to boycott the competition on social media.
“The best match was held in Thiruvananthapuram. We can never blame the government or the minister. The government and corporation have given us a lot of help. A social media campaign was launched to boycott the competition. People see it as a competition run by the government. When such attention comes, people will react. “Cricket itself has a reputation as a rich man’s game,” said Jayesh George.
There were fewer spectators at yesterday’s game. There was a protest over the addition of entertainment tax on tickets. However, Sports Minister V. Abdurrahiman’s statement was widely criticized and there was a call to boycott the competition on social media.
