Five of the six matches in the highly anticipated Dettol ODI and T20 International Series between the Australian and Indian men’s teams have sold out today after tickets went on sale this morning.
The second and third Dettol ODIs at the SCG and Manuka Oval respectively have been exhausted, while the Manuka Oval T20 INTL and two SCG T20s are sold out.
Limited tickets to the first Dettol 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% 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.
Anthony Everard, Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager of Fan Engagement, said that it showed fans can’t wait for the men’s international season to begin.
“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 Dettol 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.”
“We’re extremely grateful to the NSW and ACT Government for working with us to bring cricket to Sydney and Canberra, and this shows how strong the love for the game is.”
“The safety of our fans will still be our number one priority, so communications to ticket holders will be occurring to ensure our COVIDSafe plans are executed effectively.”
James Allsopp, Cricket ACT CEO, said that there was some genuine excitement building in Canberra ahead of the two T20Is.
“It’s fantastic to have such high quality international cricket coming to the ACT this summer and I’m not surprised that fans have acted so quickly to ensure they have a seat,” he said.
“Both games at Manuka are going to be fierce contests, and we look forward to welcoming the Australian and Indian teams to Canberra.”
“With such high demand, it’s inevitable that some fans may have missed out, but there is plenty of other cricket to come with BBL matches in Canberra.”
