ICC to slash ticket price for reserve day of WTC Final

The ICC will reportedly reduce the ticket prices for the reserve sixth day of the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand, currently underway in Southampton, England.

While the entire first day’s play was washed out, the second day witnessed just 64.4 overs of play.

On Day three, 76.3 overs was bowled on Sunday and as a result, it is now for sure thay the reserve day will come into play.

Meanwhile, the fourth day’s play is also affected with the first session already washed out.

Significantly, the tickets are priced at GBP 150 (INR 15,444), GBP 100 (INR 10,296) and GBP 75 (INR 7722) which will be slashed for the reserve day.

Earlier, New Zealand ended a truncated third day of the contest on Sunday at 101/2 in reply to India’s first innings total of 217.

The third day day was forced to be called-off prematurely, thanks to the dark clouds covering the Hampshire Bowl, making the visibility poor for play.

At stumps, Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson was batting on 12 (37 balls, 1×4) while Devon Conway was at 54 (153 balls, 6x4s) with New Zealand trailing India by 116 runs.

Ace spinner R. Ashwin and Ishant Sharma took the two wickets.

As per reports, the new rates will be GBP 100 (INR 10,296), GBP 75 (INR 7722) and GBP 50 (INR 5148).
