WTC Final: ICC to sell tickets at reduced rates for the reserve day

The International Cricket Council (ICC) will lower ticket prices for the reserve sixth day of the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand, which has been hampered by bad weather.

After the first day’s play was washed out, the second day saw 64.4 overs bowled, and the third day on Sunday saw 76.3 overs bowled between the two sides.


It looks like the fourth day’s play is also in jeopardy and the sixth day, which the ICC had set aside as a backup, is quickly approaching.

“Yes, the prices of the tickets for the sixth day will be reduced. It’s a standard practice for Test matches played in the United Kingdom. Since the Test match is only open to UK residents, ICC is following the same guidelines,” an ICC source told PTI on Monday.

The tickets for the WTC final are priced in three slabs: GBP 150 (INR 15,444), GBP 100 (INR 10,296), and GBP 75 (INR 7722).

After reducing rates, the new rates will be GBP 100 (INR 10,296), GBP 75 (INR 7722), and GBP 50 (INR 5148).
