India vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20I: Ahead of the final T20I between India and Sri Lanka, former cricketer Russel Arnold faced a tough time due to a traffic jam in Pune. The cricketer-turned-commentator had reached Pune from Indore for commentating in the third match of the series scheduled to be played at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
Arnold posted a video of a traffic snarl on his official Twitter handle, saying he was stuck in the middle of the road with nowhere to go. Several Twitter users commented on the 20-second video, claiming traffic congestion was their daily affair in the city.
