India vs England: Will Modi attend 3rd Test at Motera?

“There’s some big challenges keeping wicket the way the pitch will change and deteriorate over the five days,” Buttler told a video conference. — Reuters  File India vs England: Fans to be Allowed For 3rd Test, BCCI to Extend Invitation to PM Narendra Modi

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are waiting for a confirmation from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on the decision to allow fans in the stadium for the last three Tests. However, after the government announced a revised regulation of having 50% capacity crown, TNCA is rethinking.

Despite several injuries to key players, the Ajinkya Rahane led Team India made a great comeback from 0-1 down to beat hosts 2-1 in the four-match Test series in Virat Kohli's absence.

According to a report by Sportstar, TNCA is contemplating having fans for the second Test at least.

"We will discuss among ourselves and then hold talks with the BCCI".

"It feels good to be back playing; obviously that's what I get paid to do, so to be playing cricket again is a really nice feeling, and to get those two games played and to win the series two-nil, obviously the boys played some good cricket". We are trying very hard to allow media in for the first two Tests.

The first Test will not be played in front of spectators due to the limited amount of time available to make arrangements for fans as the fresh guidelines had come in only a day ago. But we will certainly try to get the crowds in for the second Test.

"I definitely think I can make an impact in this series, obviously we have got three days training and I am not sure what the wicket is going to be like or anything, so not looking too far ahead". However, with the new directives from the government, both BCCI and TNCA are likely to discuss with European Central Bank on the same, on Monday, before taking the final call. As for the two Tests at the venue, fans would be allowed as per the government's new directive.

The Motera stadium which recently underwent a renovation is now the biggest stadium in the world in terms of seating capacity.

In the SOP for resumption of sports competitions in the country released on December 26, the Sports Ministry had allowed for stadiums to filled upto 50 per cent of their seating capacity in outdoor events. "The media will also be able to cover the game from the stadium", a BCCI source was quoted as saying by the English daily on Monday. Asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be invited for the first Test match in the refurbished Motera Stadium, the BCCI official answered in the affirmative. This will be the first global match after the Ahmedabad stadium was built.
