Sydney: In the first ODI between India and Australia first ODI, Team India was completely defeated. The Kangaroos defeated India by 66 runs in a one-sided match. A very strange incident took place in this match in Sydney ground. During the match, two people came down on the ground and had to stop for a while.
These two men were protesters and entered the main play area with a cardboard sign during the seventh over of the match. In that poster it was written ‘No 1 billion dollar Adani loan’. In fact, in the last few days in Australia, the news of loan of Rs 5000 crore was given by SBI to Adani Group for coal mining.

The security personnel had to struggle to get these people out of the ground and then the stadium, and during this time the players and umpires were standing at the ground wondering what all this was going on.
The protesters were wearing a t-shirt, in front of which slogans like Stop Adani, Stop Cole, Take Action were written.
According to Fox Sports, a group called Stop Adani issued a press release urging the State Bank of India (SBI) not to loan Adani a billion Australian dollars.
In September, Australia’s controversial Adani coal mine registered a win against environmental activists, while announcing that the project employed more than 1,500 people in the state of Queensland during its construction.

The Stop Adani movement became a household name in both Australia and abroad, against the growing climate change concerns caused by the mine’s planning and construction.
