    Must be about allocation of tickets..
    How many tickets one person can buy?..The sad thing is most of the times people come to take them so that they can sell at a very high price at the venue.. Empty stands is a sour to eyes..
    Atleast the last minute Tickets should be given with printed ID Cards so that non transferable.

    It is a pity that we still follow a system similar to selling of tickets for wayside "Teeters" of those days. Why not consider sale of e-tickets which will at least ease the situation somewhat at sales points.

    If the British national was smart enough to get tickets without having to pay for it surely our cricket fans should know better how to out- smart him in their own country.
