T20 causing water shortage?

T20 causing water shortage?
Bangalore, DHNS:
St Marks Road and Lavelle Road have been having acute water shortage since last two days.

A top official in the area, on anonymity, blamed the ongoing IPL Twenty20 cricket match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers for the problem. “Drinking water from our areas have been diverted there,” he charged.

A source at Bowring Institute too supported the view. However, the BWSSB officials denied any kind of water diversion. “The stadium always asks for extra tankers during matches and we supply them the required quantum.
However, the consumption of drinking water may be high during the matches at the stadium,” said Chief Engineer (Maintenance) Venkataraju. Moreover, the Bowring Institute needed more water as they plan to re-open their swimming pool. The Board had assured them it would be provided, he added.
