“We will not have fans with an eye on the COVID-19 situation. But whether the last game moves to Mumbai or all the matches will be played in Pune is a call that is still to be finalised. We also need to keep the English cricket board in the loop,” quoted by Source.
The T20Is are set to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad itself. The three ODIs are to be played on March 23, 26, and 28 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune according to the underlying arrangement.
Strangely, a BCCI functionary even said that if the quantity of cases increment in Maharashtra, the ODIs could likewise be seen in Ahmedabad as that would mean not moving starting with one state then onto the next.
“While we do use charter planes, but I would think if the cases do increase in Maharashtra, we could have a situation wherein we stick to Ahmedabad for the rest of the tour,”

The match saw the two India and England batsmen neglecting to sparkle and getting out to balls that didn’t divert and slipped through from the spinners. With this success, India is one bit nearer to arriving at the finals of the World Test Championship (WTC).
