Additional standing room tickets for the enthralling T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan were sold out in less than 10 minutes. The Melbourne Cricket Ground will be packed on October 23 for the much anticipated match between India and Pakistan.
The additional standing room tickets, which were made available two months ago, were sold out inside ten minutes, according to the ICC. An official T20 World Cup resale website has been introduced by the organisers, giving fans a safe and secure option to buy and sell tickets at face value.
The two teams will clash for the third time; the first two took place during the Asia Cup last month. Shaheen Afridi is anticipated to play for Pakistan against India after making a comeback to the team. India, however, is without Jasprit Bumrah in their roster but makes up for it with the experience of Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in their pace attack. After a string of unreliable performances in the games leading up to the World Cup, Pakistan’s middle order will be hoping to finally step up. In the Asia Cup, Virat Kohli made a timely comeback to form for India, and middle-overs steadiness is provided by players like Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya.
Australia and New Zealand match today was a square off in a matchup of the 2021 T20 World Cup final where New Zealand took their revenge by thrashing the Australian side by 89 runs. The existing ticket allotment are also sold for the October 27 doubleheader at SCG between India and the Group A runner-up and South Africa vs. Bangladesh.
