BCCI has reportedly allowed full seating capacity in the stadiums for the upcoming India vs South Africa T20 series starting from June 9.
In what is a major relief for fans, ANI has confirmed that all the stadiums hosting the five T20Is would be permitted full seating capacity. While South Africa has announced its squad for the series, India is yet to confirm its team. It is expected that Shikhar Dhawan will captain the side, in a team that is expected to include several players who have performed well in the ongoing season of the IPL.
These speculations arise as several players who compete in multiple formats are expected to be given a rest ahead of the series against England, which begins in July.
