The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) has refrained itself from distributing free tickets to the Sports Department of the Government of West Bengal, thus being unable to give the tickets to the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan, for the the epic clash between India and Pakistan, during Super 10 Group 2, Match 19 of the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 at the historic Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday. Earlier, CAB issued a notice saying they have not issued any free ticket and thus Golden Card Life Members (B & C category) too would not be getting the tickets for the epic clash on Saturday. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Pakistan, ICC T20 World Cup 2016, Match 19 at Kolkata

Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan members who previously had access to tickets to matches played at Eden Gardens, are left without access to the ground for the much-anticipated clash between the arch-rivals at he biggest stage of T20 cricket. They are left disgruntled (and for valid reasons) as a result, and will have to hunt for tickets in a completely sold-out market. While some members got free tickets from Netaji Indoor Stadium, others were deprived. Interestingly, they were issued free tickets for some other matches in the ongoing ICC World T20 2016. The attachment in this news-piece came from one of the unfortunate members.

Having suffered an embarrassing defeat to New Zealand in the opening match of the T20 World Cup 2016, a battered Indian cricket team will look to bounce back in their all-important match against arch rivals Pakistan, at Kolkata on Saturday. The Indian cricket team has been on a roll in T20Is, but their shocking defeat to New Zealand by 47 runs has put them at the fourth position in the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 Points Table, whereas Pakistan, following their massive win over Bangladesh by 55 runs, are at the top.

India and Pakistan’s Women’s teams will play earlier in the day, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi, in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2016 match. While Saturday promises to be an interesting day for cricket fans of these two nations, the result of the first game is unlikely to have any impact on the evening match between the men.
