Johannesburg. The Test series between India and South Africa is going to start from December 26 and big news has come about the entry of spectators in the first match of this series. It is believed that the first Test of the series will be played without spectators as South Africa Cricket Board is not selling tickets due to the Omicron variant of Corona.

The ‘News24’ website quoted the Afrikaans-language weekly newspaper ‘Report’ as saying that due to Corona restrictions, the government has allowed entry to only 2000 fans, due to which only certain people will be able to watch the match in the stadium. So far, tickets for the second Test, starting here from January 3, are also not being sold.

The stadium’s Twitter account said, “No announcement has been made regarding the sale of tickets for the second Test between India and South Africa. It is not yet clear whether the audience will be allowed entry or not. An announcement will be made when the time comes.

Cases of corona infection have increased in South Africa for some time. Due to this, the remaining matches of the domestic tournament four-day franchise series were postponed. The Indian team has been staying at the resort which is fully booked for them since their arrival here on December 16. The third Test will be held in Cape Town from January 11.
