Andrew strauss, Mahendra Singh DhoniBangalore: On Feb.27, the first ODI match in World Cup Cricket-2011 organised by International Cricket Council takes place in Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore under the supervision of KSCA, headed by cricket legend Anil Kumble, near a Circle named after him on M.G.Road here.
The match has come as gift to KSCA, when Kolkata was denied its chance, as Eden Gardens stadium was not ready.
Sale of tickets have been arranged through various counters and stands, around the stadium from Thursday at 8am., but only one ticket per head will be sold, to prevent black marketing. The most common and lowest ticket for Rs200 is sold at G stand, while A&C stands will sell tickets worth Rs.1,250 each.
A high payment of Rs.4000 is fixed for N stand and of Rs.7,500 for T stand. There are admissions through Passes to certain privileged classes of cricket fans, in special enclosures.
About 40,000 viewers can enter the stadium holding a ticket each. Only 5000 tickets are sold to common public. The West Bengal Cricket Assn., ICC, and BCCI have made extra demands for the hot-selling tickets.
While the demand outstrips availability, prices could soar for the sold tickets, as crowds are moving around the venue looking for genuine tickets or passes. India faces India here.
