The international cricket in India is returning after almost one year with the upcoming series against England. Virat and co. will host a Joe Root-led side in 4 test matches. The first two matches will take place in Chennai while the 3rd and 4th tests are scheduled at Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad. Recently, BCCI allows 50% crowd for the matches in the world’s biggest stadium. With the news, fans are eager to book India vs England Ahmedabad test tickets. Alongside, Motera, the board has also put half of 2nd Chennai match tickets on sale.
However, there will be no crowd in the opening match of the series. Tamil Nadu Cricket Association revealed that BCCI communicated with them regarding the availability of fans. However, it was too late to make arrangements for the first test. Chepauk has a seating capacity of 38,000 but only 12,000 to 15,000 tickets will go on sale as no fans will be allowed at pavilion and terrace stands. The board takes this stadium because they don’t want fans to go near players.
