The rapidly rising cases in Ahmedabad, Gujarat have made Gujarat Cricket association to prohibit audience for the remaining three of the five T20I matches against England at the world’s largest cricket stadium, Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera.
The matches will be played as per schedule but without any spectators. “T20s on March 16, 18 and 20 will be played without audience at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Refund will be given to the spectators who have purchased tickets,” Nathwani said in a statement.
Due to rise in the number of Corona cases, GCA has decided to conduct the remaining 3 T20’s behind closed doors. Whoever has already purchased the tickets for the respective three T20’s would be refunded positively once the formal decisions are taken
