IND Vs ENG: No international match has been played in India since January last year due to corona virus.
The first Test match between India and England due to the Covid 19 epidemic will also be held without spectators on the field.
International cricket is going to return to India after a year-long wait amid the Corona virus epidemic.
The Indian cricket team will play the first match of the 4 Test series against England from today. Earlier, Indian players played a 3 match ODI series against Australia in January last year.
Even though the corona virus has now been reduced in India, the BCCI is not underestimating the threat of the epidemic.
The BCCI has decided to conduct the first Test at Chennai‘s Chepauk Ground without an audience on the field.
The second match will also be played on the same ground. The BCCI, however, allowed 50 per cent of the spectators to watch the match on the field for the second match. But throughout the series, players have to stay in the bio bubble.

England have lost their last three matches against India at the Chepauk Stadium. The last time the two teams faced each other on the field was in 2016. India had won the innings and 75 runs in the match.
