Air India Ground: The “Air India” facility in Santacruz, Mumbai, where prominent young cricketers from the city like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shivam Dubey, and Prithvi Shaw received their training, may no longer be accessible to aspiring players. The building is a part of a sports complex held by Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL). Which Adani Airport Holdings Limited (AAHL) acquired last year. In the venue, there were typically up to 1,000 cricket players practicing at about 60 nets. And MIAL threatened “legal penalties” if the location did not stop hosting such events.

The Cross Maidan, located south of Mumbai, is at least 22 kilometers away and is the closest cricket facility. Wasim Jaffer, the former batter for Mumbai and India, described the Air India stadium as a “pipeline for future cricketers.”

“Players like Prithvi Shaw and Yashasvi Jaiswal have come from that ground. If that ground can’t hold any activity, that pipeline will stop.”

 “There are 62 nets sessions that run daily here. At the same time, this complex also has shooting, table tennis, tennis, and badminton facilities.”

Air India Ground: Intervention From Police

“I have coaching centers at other places, too, but many whose lives depend on this ground. Many coaches earn from coaching here. It’s not only cricket but other sports too. It’s the only perfect ground in Mumbai’s suburbs.”

Said Jwala

According to a local citizen Prakash Shetty, the police are here to determine whose orders prohibited the general public from using the venue’s facilities.

“So many sportspersons use the ground for their fitness routines. Earlier too, GVK, managing the Mumbai airport, had tried to lock the ground, but we protested, and the matter was sorted out.”

Said Shetty

The only cricket field in the suburbs with a 70-yard boundary, it regularly hosts matches in the evenings under floodlights. Other Mumbai Ranji Trophy players have used it for training, notably Sachin Tendulkar’s son and former India u-19 player Arjun Tendulkar. When the facility happened to be in the lock on Wednesday night, numerous people gathered in protest, and the police intervened.

To prevent any Law & Order situations, this correspondence is also designated to the Deputy Commissioner of Police Zone VIII, according to the letter.
