Crowd capacity at the Sydney Cricket Ground for the third Test between Australia and India will initially be limited to 25 per cent of the ground's 38,000 cricket capacity -- approximately 9,500 people -- on the advice of the New South Wales Government, Cricket Australia informed on Monday.

"Acting on the advice of the NSW Government, Cricket Australia and Venues NSW are working together to ensure the safety of patrons attending the Vodafone Pink Test on January 7, with a crowd capacity limited to 25 per cent initially," Cricket Australia said in a statement.

The change to attendance numbers requires a revised socially-distanced seating plan for the Test, which begins on Thursday.

As a result, those who have pre-purchased a ticket for the match will receive a full refund (including all associated costs) and the match will be re-ticketed from Monday afternoon.
