Bangalore: Ticket sales go off smoothly

Bangalore, Dec 21, 2012 DHNS:

Ducking the usual chaos, the sale of 5,500 gallery tickets for the December 25 India-Pakistan match went off smoothly here on Friday.

The counters at the M Chinnaswamy stadium opened at around 8.00 am and all the tickets on offer on the day were sold out in about five hours without the cops having to break much sweat. A large crowd had gathered at the venue hours before the organisers threw open their counters and after the last ticket had been sold, there were as many happy faces as disappointed souls who failed to latch on the prized ticket for the high-profile match.

Barring stray incidents of an enthusiastic fan trying break the queue and another one refusing to leave the venue well after the counters had been closed, the proceedings passed off without any major incident.

The Pakistan cricket team is expected to arrive here on Saturday night via Delhi by a chartered flight.

The limited overs series between India and Pakistan will kick off with the first Twenty20 International here while the second match will be played at Ahmedabad on December 28 before heading to Chennai for the first of the three-match ODI series, starting December 30.
The second ODI of the series will be played at Kolkata on January 3, while Delhi host the third and final one-dayer on January 6.
