Chinnaswamy Stadium’s Advanced ‘Sub-Air System’ Prepared to Safeguard Pakistan vs New Zealand World Cup Match from Rain
Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore is all set to host the crucial World Cup clash between Pakistan and New Zealand, introducing a sophisticated ‘sub-air system’ designed explicitly to shield the match from potential rain interruptions.
The stadium’s ground staff have confirmed the installation of this state-of-the-art system, intended to avert waterlogging during adverse weather conditions. The system is meticulously structured to commence automatically at the onset of rain. It has the capacity to restore the playing field within a remarkably short duration of 15 to 20 minutes after rain cessation, ensuring swift resumption of the match.
Anticipating rain post 2 PM, as forecasted by the Indian Meteorological Department, this technological marvel, implemented in Chinnaswamy Stadium since 2016, promises an effective solution to combat inclement weather’s impact on the match.
The sub-air system’s unparalleled efficiency boasts the ability to drain water a staggering 36 times faster than natural drainage mechanisms. The installed network of pipes under the system possesses an impressive capability to extract a substantial volume of 10,000 liters of water per minute, significantly minimizing the risk of water accumulation on the playing surface.
This innovative infrastructure not only underscores the commitment of the stadium authorities to ensure an uninterrupted, high-stakes game but also highlights the evolution of modern technology in maintaining the sanctity of cricket matches in the face of weather challenges. The Chinnaswamy Stadium’s forward-looking approach with the sub-air system stands as a pioneering example in preserving the integrity of cricketing events against rain-related disruptions.
