India vs England: Fans Allowed in Stadium for IND vs ENG 2nd Test in Chennai

Fans will be allowed back into stadiums for the first time in almost a year when India play England in the second Test match in Chennai. The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, on Tuesday, announced crowds up to 50% of the stadium capacity will be allowed at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai for the India vs England second Test match, which is set to be played from February 13. The TNCA, however, said that the stadium will be shut for spectators for the opening Test of the four-match series at the same venue.

“In view of the Government announcement that 50% occupancy would be allowed in stadia, Tamil Nadu Cricket Association will allow 50% spectators for the 2nd Test to be held between 13th and 17th February 2021.”

The India vs England Test series will be the first international cricket event in India since the India- series here in January last year. With coronavirus pandemic raging in the country, the India vs ODI series at home had to be postponed in March 2020 and since then cricket events have been cancelled or postponed in the country. The recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali 2021 was the first cricket event of any sorts to be played in India since COVID-19 ravaged through all sports calendars and brought the sporting world to a halt.
