This time too, India’s first match is against Pakistan and all the tickets for this match have been sold out. All the tickets for the T20 World Cup 2022 were sold out within minutes of the sale.

The T20 World Cup kicks off in Australia on October 16, while India’s first match is against Pakistan on October 23. The match will be played one day before Diwali. At the same time, the final match of the tournament will be played on November 13. After the match between India and Pakistan, the demand for tickets for the match between India and South Africa is the highest. Global Sports Travel Company has the right to sell tickets for this tournament. Ash Chawla of the company said, “So far we have sold 40 per cent of our packages in India. At the same time, 27 per cent are sold in North America, 18 per cent in Australia and 15 per cent in the UK and the rest of the world. Hotel rooms in Melbourne are already booked.
About 45-50,000 spectators are expected to watch the match in Melbourne for the India-Pakistan match. Tickets for the India-Pakistan match were sold out in a matter of minutes, with only a handful of VIP tickets remaining. Manoj Saraf, MD, Genwell Sports, said, “Tickets for the India vs Pakistan match were the most sought after and sold out just two months ago. The ICC has recently launched a new type of ticket called Boundary Club, which has only 300 tickets for the India-Pakistan match, which will also go on sale this week.
He further said that the demand for tickets for the India vs South Africa match is second. Most of our sales are to Indians who will travel to Australia, but Indians living in Africa, the UK and Australia have also bought tickets in bulk. Australia was originally scheduled to host the T20 World Cup between 18 October and 15 November 2020, but the tournament could not be held due to Corona. It was later held in the UAE. Now, two years later, Australia is back to host the tournament.
