After general tickets were sold out within five minutes for the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup 2022 clash in Melbourne, the International Cricket Council (ICC) today (August 25) released standing room tickets.
Over 4,000 standing room tickets and a limited number of additional seated allocations were released at t20worldcup.com, the ICC said in a statement.
“The standing room tickets will be available for $30 and sold on a first come, first served basis. All fans are encouraged to create their T20 World Cup ticketing account in advance due to the anticipated demand for the additional tickets,” it added.
