As per the latest reports, the Karnataka government has allowed spectators in full capacity at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
The stadium will now seat spectators in 100 per cent capacity as opposed to the previous 50 per cent.
A rise in ticket sales has led to this decision from the KSCA.
M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is the centre for the second and final Test between India and Sri Lanka.
The match is all set to start tomorrow and will be a day-night affair.
This is also Bengaluru’s first day-night Test match and also its first Test fixture since June 2018 when Afghanistan played their inaugural game here.
M. Chinnaswamy was to host Virat Kohli’s 100th Test previously.
But a shift in plans made it the venue for a series ender so as to give Sri Lankan players a direct flight to Colombo.
10,000 tickets have already been sold out in the first two days as reported by the KSCA and they have also opened up additional ticket sales so as to allow full capacity at the stadium.
