Ahmedabad City Police arrested two people for using the broadcasting lag to provide advance information during the fifth and final T20 match played on March 20 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
During the final T20 match, which was played without any spectators, Haryana residents Prince Sunil Kumar Gambhir, 21, from Panipat and Ashish Birendra Yadav, 26, from Rewari - two people who entered the stadium with vendor passes, were seen constantly talking on their phones.
