The first Test between India and Sri Lanka set to be played in Mohali from March 4 will not be organized behind closed doors as initially planned, BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirmed. The match will be former India captain Virat Kohli’s 100th Test for India. The mandate of the PCA, acting on BCCI’s directive, that the Mohali Test will be held behind closed doors didn’t go down well with the die-hard cricket fans, who were excited to witness Kohli’s record appearance.
India will play the second and final Test of the series in Bangalore from March 12 where 50 per cent of crowds are being permitted.
