Cricket"Shocked to learn that ICC is selling tickets for $20000 per seat": Ex-IPL Commissioner on India vs Pakistan clash

Srinagar: Former BCCI official and IPL commissioner Lalit Modi has accused ICC of selling India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2024 match tickets for $20000 per seat.

India is set to clash with Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2024 match on June 9 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

When these two adversaries faced off in the last T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli delivered one of the best innings in the history of the competition, and the match quickly became legendary.

Meanwhile, former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi has alleged that tickets for the highly anticipated match are being offered for as much as $20,000 (Rs. 5566180) per seat.

He believes that the International Cricket Council (ICC) intends to put profits ahead of the game promotion.

According to the ICC, tickets for the competition range in price from $300 (sold out) to $10,000.

“Shocked to learn that ICC is selling tickets for Diamond Club at $20000 per seat for the #indvspak WC game. The WC in the US is for game expansion & fan engagement, not a means to make profits on gate collections. $2750 for a ticket It’s just #notcricket #intlcouncilofcrooks,” he added.

Due to strong demand prices for India-Pakistan games have previously skyrocketed, with several instances of tickets being sold for more than ten times their initial price.

India’s World Cup campaign will begin on Wednesday, June 5, in New York against Ireland and continue the following day in the same city against Pakistan.
