Reports: Hyderabad Stadium’s power was turned off because unpaid bills were outstanding.

The article went on to say that the HCA was unable to pay the 1.6 crore electrical debt.

On April 5, Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will play at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. There was a hitch in the intense match right before the game. The Hyderabad Cricket Association is reportedly behind on their DISCOM electricity bill. The stadium’s electricity has been turned off as a result.

The article went on to say that the HCA was unable to pay the 1.6 crore electrical debt. The unpaid balance stemmed from a seven-year payment default. The association received the initial notification in February 2024, but the board disregarded it. In response, the department cut off the stadium’s electrical supply.

“Prior to the IPL match, the Hyderabad Cricket Stadium has lost electricity. For the past seven years, the HCA has failed to pay DISCOM a 1.66 crore charge. They had already asked the judge to take into account their plea. February 2024 saw the serving of the first notice. Despite several follow-ups, there was no answer from HCA. The Newsmeter cited the source as saying, “The department has already disconnected the power supply.”

The IPL spectacle has significance thanks to Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Given their impressive roster on paper, many had predicted Sunrisers Hyderabad to steal the show at the IPL auctions, and they have been living up to the expectations since then. They even paid an incredible 20.5 crore to acquire Pat Cummins. In the end, Cummins took Aiden Markram’s place as captain. Over time, the management sought to capitalise on the Australia captain’s “Midas touch” with the hardware.

But they lost their first game, which was against the Kolkata Knight Riders. However, their bloodshed against the Mumbai Indians wrote IPL history. The group went on to shatter Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s long-standing record for the greatest total. They scored 277 runs in their game versus MI, winning by a margin of 31 runs.
