Refund will be given to the spectators who have purchased tickets,” said Dhanraj Nathwani, vice president of GCA, in a statement. Those who have received complimentary tickets arerequested not to visit the stadium, he added.
The first two T20Is of the series were held with spectators capped at 50 per cent of the stadium capacity. However, with the stadium capacity at 1.32 lakh the number of spectators allowed inside the stadium was also significant.
The last three T20Is are scheduled to be held on March 16, 18 and 20. The five-match series is levelled at 1-1 after India won the second T20I on Sunday after having lost the first one on Friday.
