Tickets for the match scheduled between India and Pakistan in the upcoming Cricket World Cup 2023 are selling at a price as high as Rs 56 lakh in the secondary market. Many tickets of the match are available in the range between Rs 18 lakh and Rs 22 lakh. The tickets are being sold on Viagogom, which claims to be the “world’s largest source of live entertainment tickets".

According to a report by Mint, one ticket from the South Premium West 2 block at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad had been sold for over ₹19 lakh.

Meanwhile, users have started to question the authenticity of BookMyShow, the official ticketing partner for the upcoming World Cup. They have called the huge prices as “ridiculous".

“Viagogo, a ticket-selling website, is selling tickets at huge prices. This raises questions about how this is feasible when all tickets are officially sold through BookMyShow, the authorized ticketing partner," wrote one of the users on X.

“@bookmyshow must share some official data citing how many tickets out of 1,32,000 were actually put up on sale and how many they have sold on both dates. And same data for all matches MUST be shared OFFICIALLY," wrote another.

“Black market is now hot…see the prices for Ind vs Pak match it starts from 1.5lac and i have seen ticket of 15lac as well with Long On view …this is ridiculous," came from another social media user.

The demand is massive for other matches of the tournament as well that involves India’s participation. On the ticketing website, tickets for India vs Australia match at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai are selling at as high as ₹2.85 lakh. Tickets for India vs England match at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow are selling at ₹2.35 lakh. Tickets for India vs South Africa match at Eden Gardens in Kolkata are selling at ₹2.35 lakh.
