It is compulsory to produce the test report, even for those who have been vaccinated. The report is to be duly presented every single time the spectator steps in to watch matches daily. Therefore, in order to save yourself, one is required to get tested and if the report is negative, then only one will be entitled to watch the match. 

On Thursday evening, the news came that BCCI is conducting the RT-PCR tests at Wankhede Stadium from 11 am to 1 Pm.
