The Vijay Merchant Pavilion at the Wankhede Stadium pavilion did not have a proper ramp for wheelchair Ayush Gupta

It was not just the spectators who cheered for hosts India during their first of the three-ODI series against New Zealand at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, but a couple of Indian wheelchair cricketers too were supporting the team at the venue. Ramesh Shripate and Shahid Ansari were the two disabled wheelchair Indian cricketers who were among the spectators during the tie on Sunday. Although they had made a smooth entry into the stadium, they faced little problems in finding their seats at the venue. The duo had ticket for Vijay Merchant Pavilion. However, since the pavilion did not have a proper ramp for wheelchair, they were sent to the adjacent Garware Pavilion. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs New Zealand 2017-18, 1st ODI at Mumbai

Nevertheless, they did not find any help there either since their tickets did not support the stand and were denied entry at the stand. Instead, they were sent back to the Vijay Merchant Pavilion, when the authorities finally allowed them through the side entry, which had the ramp for wheelchair access. Nonetheless, despite going through some hectic procedure to find their seats, they were still calm enough as they enjoyed the match and cheered for Virat Kohli and co. “This is the first time we’re watching a match live here. It’s a dream come true. The atmosphere is incredible,” said Shripate, as reported by mid-day.com.
