All tickets for the final match of the 12th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) were sold in two minutes. Fans are angry with the sale of stadium tickets of 39 thousand capacity so fast. They have questioned the fairness and accountability of the BCCI. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had opened the booking of tickets without prior notice. Despite this, it is a surprise to book all tickets within two minutes.
Final of the IPL is to be played on May 12 at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. If cricket experts believe that 25,000 to 30,000 tickets are sold in the matches, but this time it happened that nobody came to know and tickets were sold?
A member of the Executive Committee of the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has also questioned transparency and accountability. He said, “How can all tickets of the final be sold in 2 minutes? It is quite shocking. The BCCI has to answer to deny the fans to watch the final.”
According to the sources, tickets for 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 5000, 10000, 12500, 15000 and 22500 rupees were to be sold. However, the website which had rights to sell final tickets, it sold tickets for 1500, 2000, 2500 and 5000. What happened to tickets for the other 12500, 15000 and 22500? Did not find anything.
Fans are raising questions about this. There is no information about whether these tickets were sold on the website or not. Tickets by 1500 tickets were available till Thursday evening, but they were unable to book.
The website was talked about with Sudhir Reddy. Sudhir said, “I can not give any information about this. In this case, you can get all the information from the BCCI. I do not have the right to say anything about it.‘
