LAHORE: The National Command and Control Center (NCOC) has reportedly allowed a full capacity crowd at the National Stadium in Karachi to watch the matches between Pakistan and West Indies, The News reported Friday.

This would be the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Pakistan that a full house will be permitted. Earlier, the NCOC had only allowed 25% crowd attendance in the stadiums with strict standard operating procedures (SOPs).

The three-match T20I series is all set to commence from December 13, while the teams will then lock horns in the ODI series, which is part of the ICC World Cup Super League, at the same venue.
