“For outdoor events, spectators will be allowed up to a maximum of 50% of the total capacity of the stadium. Standard operating procedures and guidelines for conducting sporting competition in India in the Covid-19 environment”.

Though it was stated by the Indian government that 50% of the crowd can be allowed on the grounds, they would not take any kind of risk with the safety of the players.

So far, there haven’t been any official statement yet on the allowance on the crowd. We may have to wait before the commence of the second Test match.
