The state’s cricket-governing body had a meeting with the state government, where it was decided that fans will be allowed in stadiums for the India vs New Zealand T20I game scheduled to take place next Wednesday.

“Guidance was sought from the Home Department of the state government on entry of spectators in the match while also complying with COVID-19 protocols,” RCA Secretary Mahendra Sharma was quoted as saying by ANI. “Rajasthan Cricket Association has got permission in this regard by the department for the entry of spectators in the match.”
“According to guidelines issued by the state government, spectators should follow COVID appropriate behaviour like mandatory use of masks, sanitisation, thermal screening, proper ventilation and vaccination with at least one dose of covid vaccine by all spectators, staff and players,” Sharma added.
Sharma also mentioned that fans who have not been fully vaccinated must have a negative RT-PCR report, no older than 48 hours before match time.
