As mentioned above, the newly set Motera Stadium will host as much as 7 games. Firstly it’ll host 2 test matches out of which one will be a day and night test match played with pink ball. Lastly it’ll host all 5 matches of the T20I series. Meanwhile the newly constructed Motera stadium is one of the biggest stadiums in the world with a seating capacity of 1,10,000. On the other hand Chennai will host the 1st two test matches while Pune will host 3 ODI matches.

Cricket will be making a comeback to India after a long time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As this will be India’s first bilateral series at home since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently BCCI has announced just 3 venues for the whole tour in order to reduce the transportation involved between each match. Decision regarding whether to let spectators inside the stadium or not has not been taken yet.
