THOUGH, IT is the ongoing Test series between India and England where the Indian players and fans are concentrating, but at back of their minds they are aware of the looming Indo-Pak cricket series, which is going to start from December 25, 2012. The series would have two T20 matches and three ODIs during the time the English team heads back home for a break from the present tour.
THE FIRST T20 match is expected to see a sell out crowd at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore, for which ticket sales have even gone online. The tickets are priced differently for different location on the stands. A total of 7187 tickets would be available online at bookmyshow and it is expected that online sales would be over pretty soon, looking at the craze among the Indian fans, as it has been a long time since either of the two countries played in India
or Pakistan in a bilateral tour.
The orgnaisers have not only kept the Indian fans in their minds, as for the reservation of tickets are concerned, as around more than 2600 tickets would be reserved for Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as well, where the fans are expected to travel across the border to come and watch the game – attaching a historical importance as well. Tickets have also been kept reserved for KSCA members, cricket clubs, etc.
Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) secretary Javagal Srinath said in this nnis video, “We also have reserved tickets for the PCB, anybody coming from Pakistan, I think we need to keep some tickets for that as well- that is 2673 tickets.” This has been a good step taken by the KSCA, as apart from the Indian fans, one would also get to witness supporters from Pakistan, which would make the contest even more rivetting.
As far as the match is concerned, one can expect high voltage drama, and tension during the game. Though both teams are going to go all out to win, but irrespective of the result, it is the game of cricket, which would turn victorious.
