In February the general tickets sales drastically for the marquee game were sold out within five minutes.
The International Cricket Council publicized that, for 30 Australian dollars over 4000 standing room tickets will be available and sold on a first come, first served basis.
The ICC said, “The ticket release ensures that as many fans as possible can attend the fixture scheduled to be played on Sunday 23 October. A limited number of packages also remain available for purchase via the ICC Hospitality and ICC Travel & Tours programmes”.
On October 16, closer to the tournament’s opening match, the organisers thinking that they will also start a re-sale platform.
“Fans who miss out on tickets can still book their place to see the world’s best cricketers at other T20 World Cup matches, with kids tickets starting from just $5 and adult tickets from $20,” the ICC said.
“Tickets are also still available to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Final, also being played at the MCG on 13 November.”
