KARACHI: Tickets for the three-match T20 series between Pakistan and West Indies are being sold online and centres of a courier company in Karachi.
Urging cricket fans to buy the tickets, Pakistan Cricket Board Chairperson Najam Sethi shared on social media: “HISTORIC WEST INDIES SERIES 1,2,3 April: Rs 1000,2000,5000 Tickets on sale online and at TCS centres. — Rs 500 Tickets ONLY from TCS centres. HURRY HURRY.”
Tickets are available for the matches on April 1, 2 and 3 at the National Stadium, Karachi.
The tickets prices Rs1,000, Rs2,000 and Rs5,000 are available online, while tickets worth Rs500 can only be bought from courier company’s centres.
The series was initially scheduled to be held in November last year. However, it was postponed after hesitation from senior West Indies players.
Last month, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi announced that all three matches of the series will be held in Karachi.
The last time Karachi hosted an international match was back in 2009, during the ill-fated Pakistan-Sri Lanka tour which resulted in eight deaths. Seven visiting players were also injured.
On Sunday, Karachi hosted the final of the third edition of the Pakistan Super League in which several international players, including Darren Sammy, Luke Ronchi, JP Duminy, and Steven Finn, took part.
