Standing room tickets were released on Thursday for the highly anticipated ICC Men’s T20 World Cup fixture between India and Pakistan at the MCG on October 23.
The general tickets for the marquee game were sold out within five minutes of going on sale in February. Over 4000 standing room tickets will be available for 30 Australian dollars and sold on a first come, first served basis, said the International Cricket Council.
The ticket release ensures that as many fans as possible can attend the fixture scheduled to be played on Sunday 23 October. A limited number of packages also remain available for purchase via the ICC Hospitality and ICC Travel & Tours programmes,” said the ICC.
The organisers will also launch a re-sale platform closer to the tournament’s opening match on October 16. “Fans who miss out on tickets can still book their place to see the world’s best cricketers at other T20 World Cup matches, with kids tickets starting from just $5 and adult tickets from $20,” the ICC said. – MD
