Cricket Australia (CA) on Friday (November 20) announced that the tickets for second and third One-Day Internationals (ODI) have been sold out and as far as the T20 Internationals (T20I) are concerned, tickets for all three games have been sold out. India and Australia clash in a three-match ODI and a three-match T20I series, which will begin from November 27.
"The second and third ODIs at the SCG and Manuka Oval respectively have been exhausted while the Manuka Oval T20I and two SCG T20Is are sold out," CA said in a release.
"Limited tickets to the first ODI on November 27 at the SCG remain, with approximately 1,900 public seats left. Both the SCG and Manuka Oval will be at 50 per cent capacity for series, with fans voting with their feet after ticket prices were frozen from the last time India came to Australia in 2018/19," it added.
Cricket Australia's Executive General Manager of Fan Engagement, Anthony Everard feels that the fans cannot wait for the men's season to start. "The rivalry between the Australian and Indian men's cricket teams is one of the greatest in international sport and this series is shaping up as an epic," Everard said.
"It's been fantastic to see so much interest in the ODI and T20I Series, with the high demand starting from yesterday with our pre-sale period offered to the Australian Cricket Family. It didn't take long today for things to move quickly, with now just a couple of thousand tickets remaining for the first ODI on November 27 at the SCG," he added.
Once the ODI and T20I series conclude, the two teams will clash in a four-match Test series, which will begin with a day-night affair at Adelaide from December 17. India are the current holders of the Border-Gavaskar trophy, having won the previous series 2-1.
