Guwahati: At a time when Guwahatians are anticipating a high-octane T20 international cricket match between India and South Africa at the Barsapara stadium on Sunday, a section of cricket lovers were deprived of getting a single ticket for the T20 match.

They also alleged that black marketers had a field day by raking big money by selling Rs 1500 denomination tickets for Rs 5000 and Rs 5000 denomination tickets for Rs 10,000.

“I have been standing here since 5.30 am, but, just like me, many other cricket followers didn’t get tickets for the match. We learned that many tickets were already sold by the black marketers surrounding the stadium. This is very disheartening,” a cricket lover alleged.

Another said, “Due to these reasons, people in Assam can never grow in comparison to other states. We are students; we gave a try to get tickets but failed. When we reached the stadium, certain black marketers approached us demanding Rs 5000 for Rs 1500 denomination tickets. This is illegal and not accepted at all.”

It is been suspected that a group of black marketers might have obtained tickets through illegal means and were selling them outside the Barsapara stadium, which has a capacity of 45,000.

Notably, the Assam Cricket Association (ACA) earlier on September 15, 2022, released its schedule for ticket sales for the first T20 International between India and South Africa.

Interestingly, Barsapara Cricket Stadium will host an international cricket match after almost two years.

Rohit Sharma-led Indian cricket team has started off the three-match series against South Africa on a strong note as the hosts won the first match of the series by eight wickets.
