Meanwhile, the BCCI has decided not to allow any spectators for the upcoming first Test between India and Sri Lanka starting on March 4, which is incidentally legendary Virat Kohli’s landmark 100th Test. But, the second Test, which would be played in Bengaluru would have 50 per cent capacity crowd for the day-night Test.
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,” a senior PCA treasurer Singla told PTI on Saturday.
All eyes and buzz would be around Kohli as he gets ready to play his 100th Test. It would be interesting to see if he can get the much-awaited century in the landmark Test or not.
India would start overwhelming favourites at home against Sri Lanka.
