India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 match tickets selling poorly
The India West Indies Kolkata Test match tickets for the second test of India-WI cricket series, 2011, at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, are not selling well. The rush for tickets is no more, despite the hype of the Little Master's century of centuries. What happened?
Despite the Little Master getting out for LBW while pulling a low delivery at the Feroz Shah Kotla, and the hype of the century of centuries still sustained, Kolkata seems to have recovered from its well known cricket fever. During the Delhi test, our correspondent noticed little excitement in the capital among the public. Even this morning, I found surprisingly few people around Sunil Gavaskar at the Kolkata Airport as he arrived there from a Delhi flight. The first day of sales for India West Indies Kolkata (Eden) Test match tickets were just unthinkable as less than 100 tickets were sold from the counters. For a test match, a sale of less than hundred tickets of India West Indies test match in Eden Gardens is nothing less than a ominous sign for the future of cricket craze in India. I think not much people went to buy India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 match tickets online too.
Will India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 match daily tickets sell better?
A factor that could have really gone against the sale of tickets for the India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 at Eden Gardens Stadium is that all the five days of the match are weekdays. There is no weekend, which will definitely result in a lower turnout. However, these were all season tickets. CAB might hope for a hike in the ticket sales when the India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 match daily tickets will be available. The sale of India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 match daily tickets will certainly be more than India West Indies Kolkata Test 2011 match season tickets, especially when India will be batting. In the first innings of India, if the openers can provide the team with a solid start and make a good platform for the God of Cricket who bats at number four, a good turnout is expected to watch the tons of tons by Sachin Tendulkar.
Whatever CAB might hope, the cricket craze of the city of Sourav Ganguly really seems to be dying. The excuse of week days is really not a solid one, as Eden Gardens had also witnessed a remarkably less turnout of cricket fans in the India-England ODI on October 25, and the T20 a few days later. Are the recent cricket scams taking the interest off the crowd?
The India West Indies Eden Test 2011 match tickets are really putting up lots of questions!
