Test cricket will return to Mumbai after almost five years, as the last game played at the ground was against England in 2016.

The Maharashtra government has capped the crowd capacity at 25 percent for the game.

The first Test in Kanpur ended in a draw after a pulsating final's day play as tailender Ajaz Patel and all-rounder Rachin Ravindra denied India a win by consuming 52 balls in their 10th wicket stand.
