The three remaining Twenty20 matches between India and England in Ahmedabad will be held behind closed doors due to a rise in COVID-19 cases in Gujarat, the state’s cricket association (GCA) said on Monday.
A sizeable crowd attended the world’s biggest cricket stadium for the first two matches of the series, with most fans in the stands not wearing masks.
The series is tied at 1-1 and the final three games of the five-match series will be played on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Dhanraj Nathwani, vice-president of the GCA, said on Twitter that fans who have bought tickets for the three matches would get a refund and he urged those who received complimentary tickets to stay away from the stadium.
