England Cricket grounds to welcome crowd from 21st June!
According to a report by Daily Mail, England grounds will be allowed have a capacity of 30,000 people in the stadium from 21st June.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak around the world in 2020, usually, cricket matches are being conducted inside closed doors. Now, there is a ray of hope coming from England as sources say that from 21st June crowds will be allowed in England’s stadiums.
According to Daily Mail, ‘Such a move would be a major boost for the ECB, whose finances have been decimated by the pandemic, with losses for last year forecast to be more than £100million’. Reportedly, England vs Sri Lanka matches that will start from 23rd June will welcome the crowd. From 21st June England’s Cricket Ground will be allowed to have a capacity of 30,000 people.
However, the World Test Championship final will be conducted with the limited audience only. Earlier this year India allowed a limited crowd in the stadiums during India vs England test series. But later on, after the second wave of COVID-19 hit India, the doors were once again closed for the audience.
Notably, India and New Zealand will play World Test Championship Final from 18th June to 22nd June. Later in August, India will play a test series against England.
