Virat Kohli is not going to get crowd for his 100th test game. BCCI and Punjab Cricket Association has decided that upcoming test match with Sri Lanka Starting from March 4 will not be get attendees for the game. It is also evidently Virat Kohli’s 100th test game.

The decision has been taken in the wake of the COVID-19 cases in and around Mohali while also taking into account that most of the Indian players will be linking up with their respective IPL squads just after the end of the second Test in a bubble-to bubble transfer.

“Yes, apart from the people, who are on duty for the Test match, we are not allowing any general spectators as per the directive of BCCI,” senior PCA treasurer RP Singla told PTI on Saturday.

“Still there are fresh COVID cases emerging in and around Mohali, so it’s better we take all safety protocols. Obviously, the fans miss out because an international match at Mohali is happening after almost three years,” Singla said.

However, PCA is putting up billboards across the stadium to celebrate the momentous occasion in Kohli’s glittering cricket career.

“We will be putting up big billboards and our PCA Apex Council has also decided to felicitate Virat. We will either do it at the start of the game or at the end depending on BCCI directive.”

Recently Virat Kohli relinquished his test captaincy after being sacked as ODI captain. Rohit Sharma is backed by BCCI and he is made captain permanently.
