    Cricket fans and people from Hyderabad are enjoying the India-England first test at the Uppal ground for three days. Even though Test cricket is not as popular as before, fans are coming to this Test match organized by the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) in large numbers.

    In the past, no more than 20,000 fans attended the nine Tests hosted by Hyderabad. However, since Jaganmohan Rao became the president of HCA, fans have been flocking to the Test match like they do for IPL matches.
