Australia has started its T20 World Cup 2021 campaign with a bang. Aaron Finch’s team defeated South Africa by five wickets in their very first match. But more than his victory on Twitter, the style of sitting of the fans got more discussion. The match took place in Abu Dhabi, and a part of the stands are open there.
An exciting arrangement was made to make the fans sit in this open area while maintaining social distancing. People were made to sit in small areas by making a fence. And after seeing this arrangement, where did Twitter have to sit silent. The rain of tweets started pouring in.

Let us tell you that this is the first multinational cricket tournament in the Kovid period. And the ICC does not want to leave any stone unturned for the safety of the people. And during the match many fans were seen sitting in these cubicles. In these cubicles, a family or people of the same group were seated.
The ICC has made this arrangement to avoid mixing people coming from different countries. And along with the fans, the commentators also liked it a lot.
Talking about the match, Australia won the toss and called South Africa to bat first. And this decision of Australian Captain Aaron Finch proved to be correct. South Africa could only manage 118 runs in 20 overs. Aidan Markram scored 40 runs for South Africa. While Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa took two wickets each for Australia.
In reply, Australia did not start well either. He also lost the wickets of both his openers by 20 runs. And then Mitch Marsh was also out till the total of 38. The team also lost the wickets of Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell to the sum of 81. But then Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis together gave them victory.
