In view of the increasing cases of corona in Maharashtra, viewers will not be allowed to come in the series of three one-day matches between India and England in Pune. It has been decided to hold this match in the empty stadium. The Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) said on Saturday that it had to do so in view of the increasing cases of corona in the state.
The three ODIs are to be played at the MCA Stadium in Pune on 23, 26 and 28 March. This decision was taken following instructions from the Chief Minister, given the seriousness of the increasing cases of Kovid-19. It has been approved to organize these matches without an audience. MCA President Vikas Kakatkar met Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Tourism and Environment Minister Aditya Thackeray along with Steering Council President Malind Narvekar for the one-day event.
The Chief Minister has also asked to take all precautions against players and officials. MCA has thanked Sharad Pawar, International Cricket Council, Cricket Board of India and former President of MCA.
