IND SL Mohali Test – The decision has been taken in the wake of the COVID-19 cases in and around Mohali.

“Yes, apart from the people, who are on duty for the Test match are not allowed. No general spectators will be given entry as per the directive of BCCI,” senior PCA treasurer RP Singla told PTI on Saturday.

“There are still fresh COVID cases emerging in and around Mohali. It is better we take all safety protocols. Obviously, the fans miss out because an international match at Mohali is happening after almost three years,” Singla said.

However, PCA is putting up billboards across the stadium to celebrate the momentous occasion in Kohli’s glittering cricket career.

“We will be putting up big billboards. Our PCA Apex Council has also decided to felicitate Virat. We will either do it at the start of the game or at the end depending on BCCI directive.”

India will play the first of the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka in Mohali.

The second Test match will be played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Virat Kohli will be playing his 100th Test match under the leadership of Rohit Sharma who is leading India for the first time in Test matches.
