After a loss in the first T20I, India is back as they easily defeated the Englishmen in the second T20I of the series. The series is now levelled 1-1 and the third T20I will be even more interesting.
While fans enjoyed the first two matches from the stadium, the rise in COVID-19 cases will see them playing the remaining of the games behind closed doors.
“Due to rise in the number of Corona cases, we at GCA have decided in consultation with BCCI, the matches will be played closed door and not allow the spectators in the ground during T20 Internationals to be played between India and England at Ahmedabad. We will form the policy for the refund of money to the spectators, who have already purchased the tickets for these three T20’s. Those who have received complimentary tickets are requested not to visit the stadium,” GCA, Vice President, Dhanraj Nathwani said in a statement.
