No sale of tickets for Kolkata ODI

After about 34 months The “Mecca of Cricket” or commonly called the Eden Gardens got to host an ODI in its jam packed stadium. Everybody in Kolkata would expect to go and watch it. But unfortunately for the spectators in the stadium there is no tickets. I’m not joking its true.

The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) could incur a loss of up to Rs.2.5 crore from gate sales as there will not be any single priced ticket during the fourth ODI tomorrow.

“Our collection from the gate sales could have gone up to Rs.2.5 crore had there been a full house. And normally, we get full house in ODIs at the Eden. Moreover, with Eden getting an ODI after more than 34 months, the spectator interest would have been at its peak,” said a CAB source.

The coliseum of cricket last hosted an ODI between the islanders i.e the Lankans and The Men in Blue on Feb 8,2007 but unfortunately the match was washed out. It then hosted an India-Pakistan test in Nov 2007.
