IND vs WI: After winning the 3-0 clean sweep in the 3-match ODI series, Team India is all set to beat the West Indies in the 3-match T20 series as well. All three matches of the T20 series will be played at Eden Garden Stadium in Kolkata. In view of the crisis of Corona, like the IND vs WI ODI series, in the first match of the T20 series also, spectators have not been allowed to come inside the stadium and watch the match. While it is expected that the BCCI will reconsider its decision for the second and third matches.
Reconsideration is being done for the second and third IND vs WI matches
Before the first match of the T20 series between India and West Indies (IND vs WI), Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President Avishek Dalmia said that the Cricket Association of Bengal has decided to allow spectators in the remaining matches of the series. BCCI has been requested again for the same. He said that after getting the information from the board, the CAB will inform all its stakeholders about this.
Let us tell you that in the first T20 match, only 200 people will be able to come inside the stadium. Including match representatives and sponsors representatives. Dalmiya said that the BCCI has allowed the opening of only the upper ‘tier’ and guest boxes for sponsors and match representatives.
Mamta Banerjee had given permission to 75% of the audience
The state government of Mamta Banerjee had allowed 75% of the spectators to go to the stadium for the IND vs WI T20 series. But BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said that he cannot allow spectators for this match, keeping in mind the view of prioritizing the safety of the board. Dalmiya then requested the board to allow fans for the next two matches. Last year, when the T20 match between India and New Zealand was played at this ground, 70% of the spectators were allowed even then.
