The next three T20Is between India and England will be held behind closed doors

As a precaution against Covid-19, the remaining three T20Is between India and England will be played behind closed doors.

The Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) declared on Monday night that the final three T20Is of the India-England series will be played in an empty Narendra Modi Stadium due to increasing Covid-19 cases. On Tuesday, the third game will be played. The last two Twenty20 Internationals will be played on March 18 and 20.

BCCI said officially that "The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in consultation with the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) has decided to conduct the final three T20Is against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium with no spectators. The decision came after detailed discussions with the state and local health authorities" 

GCA's initial decision was to allow 50% capacity of the total 1,32,000 seats and around 50,000 and 65000 tickets were sold for the first and second T20Is respectively. In both matches, people were found without masks and lost social distancing.
