Mumbai Indians prevailed over Chennai Super Kings in the low-scoring Qualifier 1 at the Chepauk Cricket Stadium, Chennai, on Tuesday.
Deccan Chronicle, quoting highly place sources, has reported “The tickets manifesto is prepared by the government council; no information is shared with the TS Cricket Association. In all the IPL matches, a small share of tickets is given to HCA members, while the lion’s share is held by the BCCI. It is the responsibility of the BCCI to inform the public about tickets. The very purpose of the Lodha Committee was accountability and transparency. There was no announcement made, no statement issued to the press, no deals of ticket as per denomination, which is a mandatory requirement.
Unfortunately, no one knows how many tickets were given to Events Now.”
The capacity of the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium is around 39,000 seats, which includes the terrace, east and west stands, and VIP enclosures.
