New Delhi: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association on Saturday claimed to have received a whooping 138101 registrations in just 48 days, with cricket lovers desperate to get their hands on the hottest ticket in town when India take on Pakistan.
The Indian board had earlier stated that tickets would be sold through a lottery system for highly-anticipated matches, including India versus Pakistan which will be played in Dharamshala.
Out of the total registrations over the span of two days, 115681 were registered on day one itself.
With intent to ensure a fair opportunity and equal distribution of tickets amongst all cricket enthusiasts, the fans were required to register. An online registration form indicating their preferred match would enroll them automatically into a draw.
Winners would be chosen randomly and will receive a payment link in order to complete their booking.
The window to register has been initiated February 25 onwards, with a window of seven days only ending on March 2.
To ensure maximum people get to watch the game, not more than 2 tickets per person can be purchased for any of the India matches, or either of the semi-finals or the final.
