Mohali pitch will be different from Chennai, HyderabadMohali: The pitch of the third Test between India and Australia will not be of the same character as the last two matches in Chennai and Hyderabad, claimed Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) official.

"The wicket at the PCA ground here will not be of the same character (as it was in Chennai and Hyderabad). The pitch here will be good for both the sides. It will not bring out a one sided result as has happened in the first two matches.

"We would like to have real good cricket here," said PCA Secretary M P Pandove.

India completely outplayed the visitors in the first two Tests, winning by eight wickets in Chennai and by an innings and 135 runs in Hyderabad.

PCA President I S Bindra said that the groundsmen here have made a "competitive pitch".

"We have done exactly this (made a competitive pitch) so that spectators also enjoy and players also put in their best," he said.

Bindra, meanwhile, said since PCA wants more spectators to come for the match, tickets prices have been kept low.

"Other centers have also started adopting our policy," he added.

Pandove further said that for attracting youngsters, the rate of the tickets for the students have been priced as low as Rs 150 for five days.

"The cricket academies in the tri-city -- Chandigarh Mohali and Panchkula -- will be given a discount of 25 per cent so that they can accommodate the poor trainees who cannot even afford the cheap tickets," he added.

The air-conditioned lounge tickets have been priced at Rs 4,000, box seat at Rs 5,000, VIP enclosure Rs 750 and Chair Class Rs 250, Pandove informed, adding that the sale of tickets will commence tomorrow.
