“94 percent of the tickets have been sold. There are about 400-500 tickets left,” DDCA joint secretary Rajan Manchanda was quoted as saying by New Indian Express. In an effort to improve the fan experience, senior citizens will have the option to use a golf cart to enter the stadium. Our staff is being tested regularly. We request the fans to adhere to COVID protocols and wear masks at all times,” he added.
KL Rahul is set to lead the side in the absence of veteran batter and skipper, Rohit Sharma. His exclusion was recently blasted by a former Indian cricketer. Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah will also miss the series.
Veteran wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik has returned to the national squad due to his great showing in the IPL and young pacers Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh have also entered the fray.
India and South Africa are scheduled to play 5 T20Is. The management will have the chance to evaluate the players for the rightful place in the squad for the T20 World Cup, which is slated to take place later this year in Australia.
