- T20 International match between India and New Zealand in Jaipur on Wednesday

Ahead of the start of the first T20 International between India and New Zealand here on Wednesday, there was a clear violation of the COVID-19 safety guidelines when a large number of spectators and local policemen were seen without masks. This is the first international cricket match in India after the second wave of corona virus. Even during the match, the mask remained missing from the faces of the spectators.
For the first match of the series, there was no limit on the number of spectators in the stadium, but the spectators are allowed to enter the Sawai Mansingh Stadium only if they show proof of negative result of vaccination or RT-PCR test.
The Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) was expecting all tickets for the match to be sold out, but the stadium with a capacity of 25,000 spectators was not more than half full till half an hour before the start of the match. Fans standing outside the stadium were thrilled at the return of international cricket after eight years in the city but at least half of them did not consider it necessary to wear masks. Several policemen deployed in the security of the stadium were also seen without masks.
Anil Gupta, a local fan told inside the stadium, “I have come here with my son as I got a free pass. The food items being sold here are very expensive. When asked whether his vaccination status was checked at the time of admission, he refused. Anil Gupta was also not wearing a mask. Mohit Shera, a college student, was also seen roaming around without a mask.
Mohit said, ‘I have come here because after a long time an international match is being held here. I play myself too and watching the match is exciting. When Mohit was asked why he did not wear the mask, he ran back to his seat. This is the first time amid the pandemic that the audience limit has not been fixed inside the stadium.
Earlier this year, the Test series between India and England was held in the presence of 50 per cent of the stadium’s capacity, while later the one-day international series was held in empty stadiums after the increase in Kovid-19 cases.
