Star attraction:Actors Puneet Rajkumar and Ramya during the DLF IPL Twenty20 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore
BANGALORE: Even as the recent fiasco over the sale of tickets to the ICC World Cup for the matches played in the city remains fresh in public memory, for the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) it appears to be a case of once bitten, twice shy.
For the Indian Premiere League match that was played on Tuesday at the Chinnaswamy stadium, the KSCA put its foot down and refused to allot passes to Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) councillors.
On Monday, Mayor S.K. Nataraj reportedly sent a letter to KSCA asking for their share of 250 passes. But the KSCA is said to have stated its helplessness saying it has no control over them. The sale of tickets for IPL matches is reportedly handled by franchise owners. The KSCA's move has riled the councillors who pointed out that the BBMP does not even collect advertisement tax from the stadium authorities.
