Bangalore: An explosion occurred at one of the gates of the M Chinnaswamy cricket stadium here barely an hour before the start of an IPL match on Saturday, leaving at least two persons, including a policeman, injured.
A policeman and a private security guard posted at gate No. 11 were injured and immediately rushed to hospital, fire brigade officials said.
“It’s a minor incident in the generator room. No need to worry. We will have a delayed start though... may be of 10-15 minutes,” Sudhakar Rao, assistant secretary of the Karnataka Cricket Association said.
The cause of the blast is being ascertained.
The explosion triggered panic as it came an hour before the start of the IPL match between Royal Challengers, Bangalore and Mumbai Indians.
