Mumbai: Nov 22, 2012

The second Test between India and England starting on Friday at the Wankhede Stadium received an encouraging response from the public as tickets worth Rs 30 lakh were already sold by match hosts Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).

“We expect a minimum crowd of 25,000 for the first three days of the game which fall on (the) week-end. We are quite pleased with the response. Around 13,000 tickets are available for the public to be purchased from the ticket counters or online,” said MCA vice-president Vinod Deshpande on the eve of the match here.

The lowest-price daily ticket costs Rs 50 while the most cost-effective season ticket is Rs 150, both for the popular Sunil Gavaskar stand (lower tier) while the upper tier season tickets, plus for other public stands cost Rs 150 (daily) and Rs 600 (for five days) respectively, according to Deshpande.

After the 2011 World Cup games, MCA has outsourced ticket sales to be sold on www.bookmyushow.com, he said.

Wankhede is hosting its 23rd Test match and it may also be the last game to be played by Sachin Tendulkar, who is at the fag-end of his glittering career, at his home ground.
