India-Australia match tickets sold out

AHMEDABAD: Tickets for the World Cup quarterfinal tie between India and Australia were sold out within an hour of going on sale, local media reported on Tuesday.

The Sardar Patel Stadium will host the day-night clash on Thursday after India beat West Indies to book a last-eight game against the defending champion.

Almost 23,000 tickets were sold online and another 20,000 were sold over the counter.

A report in a national daily said hundreds of fans had to return disappointed as the tickets put on sale were sold out in less than an hour.

Police had to resort to “mild lathi-charge” to control angry crowds which “started breaking metal railings” once they found tickets were no longer available at the counters. “Since the tickets were sold in a very short time, others who were unable to get the tickets were angry and started vandalising the barricades,” a police officer was quoted as saying. — AFP
