England vs South Africa

Fans, players and staff felt the effects of the 37 degree temperature during the opening one-day international of England’s series against South Africa in Durham.

The heat took its toll on England’s 50-over debutant Matthew Potts, who was confined to just four overs at his home ground before leaving the field as he struggled to deal with sapping conditions.

South Africa posted a score of 333–5 after electing to bat in the first game of the three-match series. But the players on the field were seen facing the heat of the heat. More drink breaks than usual were organized with ice packs, wet towels and umbrellas to reduce the heat outbreak.

After England’s 62-run defeat, captain Jos Buttler said of Matthew Potts, “To be honest, he was struggling a bit with the heat. I’m sure he didn’t want that to be his debut, but he was absolutely right Wasn’t feeling it.”

All the spectators sitting on the seat unique riverside were seen soaking themselves in water to protect themselves from the brutal temperature, some were putting on their heads and some were wrapped in wet towels. Simultaneously the staff and members were also seated around the field with water containers to help the players.

The match – Ben Stokes’ final ODI for England before retiring from the format, saw nearly 16,000 appearances in the match. But the seats were left empty as some fans left the venue due to the sweltering temperatures and others took sanctuary in the gaps between the stands.

37 degree temperature must have gritted the lesuire time of many spectators. Durham responded by installing additional ‘cool rooms’ indoors, while workers also monitored that breaks were being scheduled and that all rooms had adequate ventilation.

A spokesman for the England and Wales Cricket Board said at the innings break in Chester-le-Street: “Given today’s scorching heat, we continue to be concerned about the welfare of spectators and players.

“We are providing regular information on how to keep the crowd hydrated and finding shade, and providing additional support to help anyone who is unwell.

“Additional drink breaks have been added for players. We continue to monitor the situation closely.”

The International Cricket Council is responsible for the safety of players, starting with the on-field umpires and their ongoing interactions with teams and match referees.
