Cricket fans can find something to cheer about after the World Cup organisers said that they are releasing more online tickets for Sunday s high-voltage World Cup Group B India-England match following the resentment among fans over the paucity of tickets.

Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) secretary and former Indian pacer Javagal Srinath said that all unused tickets blocked by the ICC for English and Kolkata fans for the Sunday s match would be thrown open to the public online. “All unused tickets will be sold on Saturday online after 8 p.m. through the designated (ticketing) website www.kyazoonga.com,” Srinath told reporters here.

It may be mentioned here that police used canes to control the crowds as the paltry 7,000 tickets available to the general public in the 50,000-capacity M Chinnaswamy Stadium were sold out in just three hours.

He further informed that the unused blocked tickets are coming from ICC in batches and would be only sold online. “Unused blocked tickets are coming to us in batches of 50-100 and in some cases 200-250 from the ICC. They will be sold online and not through the counters at the price they were bought earlier,” he said.

The unused tickets were sold earlier through online in the range of Rs.1,250 to Rs.7,500 per ticket.
