“94 percent of the tickets have been sold. There are about 400-500 tickets left,” Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) joint secretary Rajan Manchanda told PTI. Around 27,000 tickets were put up for sale.
“In its effort to improve fan experience, senior citizens will have the option to use golf cart to enter the stadium,” he said. Though the COVID-19 situation is under control, the DDCA has requested spectators to wear masks at all times except eating and drinking.
“Our staff is being tested regularly. We request the fans to adhere to COVID protocols and wear masks at all times,” Manchanda added. PTI
India will be fielding a pretty young team against South Africa with the likes of senior players including skipper Rohit Sharma, ex-captain Virat Kohli and speedsters Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami given rest. KL Rahul will lead India in the absence of Rohit.
