The BCCI has permitted to allow a 50 per cent crowd per day during the second Test between India and England which begins on Saturday.


With international cricket returning to India, the second Test of the four-match series will be the first time fans have been allowed to attend, considering the ever-improving coronavirus situation in the country.

The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) announced the protocols for allowing the entry of 15,000 fans for the match, which included not allowing anyone who shows symptoms of Covid-19.

The media, which was barred entry for the series opener, will also be allowed to cover the second Test
