Mohali: Oct 18, 2013

The Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium at Mohali on Saturday is expected to witness a full house when hosts India take on Australia in the third one-dayer but fans who are still planning to purchase the tickets need not be disheartened.

“We are expecting a packed (27,000 capacity) stadium tomorrow. The Chair Block and the Students Block tickets have been sold out. However, there are some tickets left in the VIP block valued at Rs 1,000 each while few tickets are also available for the Terrace block (Rs 4,000 each), AC Lounge (Rs 5,000 each) and the AC Boxes (Rs 7,500 each),” PCA Joint Secretary GS Walia told reporters.

There has been a surge in the fan interest after India’s sensational win at Jaipur after which the best-of-seven-match series currently stands leveled 1-1.

Walia said that general public is requested not to fall in the trap of unscrupulous elements, who may promise tickets at higher prices for the premium blocks, which at this stage were still available.

“The tickets have been available at the five designated branches of the Central Bank of India and at two centres at PCA, Mohali. Tomorrow, the fans can purchase the tickets from the Bank’s Mohali branch in Sector 70,” he informed.

Walia also said that tight security arrangements had been made for Saturday’s match.
