T20 World Cup 2024: Tickets for India vs Pakistan match being sold at $20,000 each; what Lalit Modi said?

The upcoming T20 World Cup in 2024 is generating excitement among cricket fans worldwide, particularly for the much-anticipated match between India and Pakistan scheduled for June 9 in New York. This match holds a special significance as the two teams have not played a bilateral series for almost a decade due to political tensions. 

India will begin their campaign in the T20 World Cup 2024 with a match against Ireland on June 5 before taking on Pakistan in the most high-profile Group A encounter in New York on June 9.

Lalit Modi raises concerns about high ticket prices

Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi has raised concerns about the high ticket prices, alleging that tickets for the match at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York are being sold for around $20,000 (Rs 16.6 lakh). He criticized the International Cricket Council (ICC) for potentially hindering the promotion of the game.

“Shocked to learn that ICC is selling tickets for Diamond Club at $20000 per seat for the #indvspak (India Vs Pakistan) WC game. The WC in the US is for game expansion & fan engagement, not a means to make profits on gate collections. $2750 for a ticket It's just #notcricket #intlcouncilofcrooks,” he posted on X (formerly Twitter).

There have been several reports indicating that match tickets are being sold on the black market and on various websites, with prices significantly higher than their face value. Despite these allegations, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has not yet issued any official statement addressing the situation.
