Two of the greatest cricket-playing teams of the current time, India and Australia locked horns in the ODI match on January 14. The match was held at Wankhede Stadium. After winning the toss, Australian captain Aaron Finch elected to bowl first and restricted India to a meagre target of 255. Subsequently, Finch and his partner, David Warner who opened the innings for the Aussies, chased the paltry target in mere 37.4 overs without losing a wicket.

This led to a rather miserable start to the much-anticipated India-Australia ODI series. However, India's 10-wicket loss wasn't the only thing that disappointed Indian fans at Wankhede Stadium. The fans were disgusted by the state of toilets at the prestigious Mumbai Cricket Association's (MCA) Wankhede Stadium.

Some of them even took to Twitter to share pictures of how bad things were.

This isn't the first time fans have complained about the quality of toilets at Wankhede Stadium. Here is a series of tweets that show how the 'dirty toilets' issue has been a persistent one:

In these pictures, one can clearly see the chocked washbasin at one of the toilets. Apart from the cleanliness, people who had come to enjoy the match also complained that the authorities were charging over and above MRP for water bottles.

People on Twitter just did not complain about how inept the authorities were in making sure that cleanliness is maintained but even pointed out that the fans too were not being good citizens and littering the place. 

If the messy and unclean toilets weren't worse enough to humilate people paying a hefty amount for watching the match, the fans also had to pay up to ₹100 for a ₹15 water bottle. A fan took Twitter to show a series of issues the fans faced during the India-Australia match:

What do you have to have about the sad state of affairs at the stadium? Would this deter you from catching a match? Do let us know your thoughts on the same.
