Mumbai: Spectators will be allowed during the second India-New Zealand Test in Mumbai from 3 December at 25 percent of the Wankhede Stadium's capacity with the host association saying that it is pushing for more.

The Wankhede stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000. A Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) official said they would try to get the limit increased to 50 percent.

"As per the general order of the Maharashtra government signed by the chief secretary, 25 percent crowd is allowed for the Wankhede Test as of now. MCA is still hopeful that they may give us 50 percent crowd permission," the official said.

The last Test held at the venue was against England in December 2016.

The match will mark the return of international cricket at the iconic venue after the COVID-19 pandemic brought sporting action to a halt last year.

The first Test of the two-match series is being held in Kanpur right now.
