Roof comes off at Sawai Mansingh stadium

December 01, 2010 17:04 IST

The roof of the north-west stand at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium which is currently hosting the India-New Zealand ODI match came down, injuring four to five people in Jaipur on Wednesday.

The incident happened just after New Zealand's first innings got over here.

"The roof came down all of a sudden. Around 4-5 people were injuried but there was nothing serious. It lead to a little scramble in the stands but there weren't reports of any untoward incident," a volunteer in the stadium said.

Batting first, New Zealand posted 258 for eight against India in the second ODI of the five-matchs series.
