The match that was supposed to be held at the Airforce ground in Palam has been rescheduled at Feroz Shah Kotla tomorrow after match referee Sanjay Verma announced the postponement and final has also been postponed and will now be played on March 20th at the same venue.

Right after the incident, the Jharkhand team was brought to the Air force Cricket Ground in Palam and after receiving the clearance from the hotel management they will be heading back to the hotel.

“We were suppose to meet at 7:30 AM but at 7 o clock we got instructions from the hotel staff to stay back in the room as there was a fire broke out in the shopping complex. Initially we assumed that it was a small accident before the smoke started becoming dense,” Virat Singh.

“To avoid any complication the team was brought to the ground. Once they (Jharkhand) is done with the formalities they will be shifting to another hotel nearby Kotla Stadium,” anti-corruption officer Manoj Chaudhary.
