The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has allowed fans to come for Virat Kohli's hundredth Test match in Mohali in the first Test match against Sri Lanka which begins from 4th March onwards.

The swashbuckling batsmen's 100th Test match will be played against Sri Lanka from the 4th of March, 2022.

"The decision to allow spectators into the ground is one taken by State Cricketing Associations and in present circumstances, is based on various factors. I have spoken with the PCA office bearers and they have confirmed that cricket fans will be able to witness the historic moment of Virat Kohli playing his 100th Test match." 

Jay Shah further added, "I am really looking forward to Virat Kohli's 100th Test and wish our champion cricketer the very best. This is an occasion for our fans to savour. May he continue to represent the country in many more matches to come." 

The Punjab Cricket Association also reaffirmed that Virat Kohli's 100th Test match will be played in front of fans in the stadium.

PCA treasurer RP Singla spoke to PTI on Tuesday and said, "The BCCI has told us to go ahead with 50 percent crowd during the upcoming Test match. BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal had called us and informed us that 50 percent crowd will be allowed and we are now making necessary arrangements".
