The five-match Test series between England and India is set to be played in front of packed crowds after UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the lifting of COVID-19 related restrictions on Monday.
India and New Zealand had played the World Test Championship final in front of a limited crowd at Southampton last month with the upper limited capped at 4000.
Crowds have either been kept out entirely or allowed in severely restricted numbers since the pandemic took hold in the UK in March last year.
"From step four we will remove all legal limits on the numbers meeting indoors and outdoors," Johnson said at a news conference.
"We will allow all businesses to reopen, including nightclubs, we will lift the limit on named visitors to care homes and the numbers of people attending concerts, theatre, and sports events"
The Indian players are currently on a break and will reassemble on July 14. The first of the five Tests will be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham from August 4.
