Mohali tickets selling like hot cakes

 The possibility of a Pakistan-India semifinal on March 30 has come as happy news for Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) as tickets for the match are selling like hot cakes.

There are realistic chances that the Asian giants could meet in Mohali for a place in the World Cup final and according to reports cricket fans are queuing up for tickets at the PCA Stadium.

If Pakistan beat West Indies in Mirpur on Wednesday (today) and India prevail over Australia in the second quarterfinal in Ahmadabad on Thursday (tomorrow) then the two arch-rivals will meet in a dream clash in the last-four stage of the tournament.

A top PCA official said on Tuesday that tickets for the match are selling like hot cakes. “There has been a brisk sale of tickets for the semifinal match. A total of 9920 tickets have been sold on the opening day yesterday at various branches of Central Bank of India including the two gates of PCA stadium, Mohali,” said PCA Joint Secretary, G S Walia, in an interview on Tuesday.

Pakistan cricket fans are also desperate to get hold of the tickets for the second semifinal. “I was in Colombo to support Pakistan against Australia and now I’m in Dhaka for the quarterfinal against the West Indies. But it will be like a dream come true if I’m at Mohali to witness a Pakistan-India World Cup match. I’ll try my best to get a ticket for it,” said Ali, a medical student from Karachi.
