India vs England: Fans to be allowed for 2nd Test in Chennai, BCCI planning to invite PM Modi.

In a major boost for cricket fans in India, the BCCI and Tamil Nadu Cricket Association have decided to allow 50 percent attendance of fans at the MA Chidambaram stadium for the second Test which will begin on February 13.

The MA Chidambaram stadium has a capacity of 50,000 but this might not go down well with the ECB, who have requested matches be played behind closed doors for the safety of players.

According to a report in the Indian Express, the BCCI is reportedly looking to extend an invitation for the Pink Ball Test in Ahmedabad to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju. This will be the second Pink Ball Test in India after the success of the 2019 series in which India played their first-ever Pink Ball Test and they beat Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. However, this will be the first match at the newly built Motera stadium in Ahmedabad and the BCCI is planning to make it big.
