Tickets have been sold out for the remaining matches of the Celkon Mobile Cup Tri-Nation One-Day International (ODI) series at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad, officials of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have disclosed.

WICB officials have said no tickets are left for any of the games and that ticket offices were closed before mid-day on Tuesday.

A number of persons who turned up to purchase tickets were forced to turn back empty handed.

The West Indies, who defeated Sri Lanka and India on the Jamaica leg of the tournament, will take on India on Friday in the presence of a 20,000 capacity crowd.

Similar crowds are expected for the West Indies’ fourth and final preliminary game against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

Officials also said that tickets for next Thursday’s final have also been sold out.

The West Indies currently lead the standings with nine points from two wins, while Sri Lanka got their first points Tuesday with an emphatic win against world champions India.
