Friday marked the return of international cricket to Australia after a nine-month gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cricket Australia has allowed a limited number of spectators to watch the game at the ground. However, a couple of protesters barged into the ground and held ‘NO $1B ADANI LOAN’ sign during the first ODI between Australia and India at the Sydney Cricket ground.
The security officials took them away after a while.
The security breach will be a headache for the organisers, especially in the time of the pandemic.
Adani coal mine had registered a victory against environmental activists in September. The group announced that the project had offered more than 1,500 jobs to people in the state of Queensland.
