Pakistan India world cup match: New reports over e tickets

During the 2023 World Cup, ticket holders must get actual tickets and present them at entrance gates at stadiums all around the nation. Even though tickets for the major 50-over competition will be offered online, Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah announced following a meeting on Thursday that there will be no option for e-tickets.

During the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, the absence of e-tickets at several sites caused crowing outside the stadiums as fans struggled to obtain the physical copies of tickets.

The board secretary clarified that while e-tickets for the World Cup are not viable, the BCCI is confident that a mechanism would be in place for bilaterals first before moving further with it.

"This time, we are unable to use electronic tickets; nevertheless, we will make sure that hard tickets may be redeemed at 7-8 centres well in advance. However, the real ticket must be kept," Jay Shah informed reporters while also addressing the possibility of postponing a few games.

The sought-after 2023 Cricket World Cup will be held in India for the first time ever as a solo host nation.

The event, which is set to take place in 10 locations around India from October 5 to November 19, 2023, includes Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Dharamsala, Delhi, Chennai, Lucknow, Pune, Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Kolkata.
