Hyderabad: Chaos was created at the Gymkhana ground over the tickets. As the ticket sales began, people rushed to the counters, resulting in a stampede. When the situation was out of control, the police did a lathi charge. In this incident, four people were injured, and a few were unconscious, including a policeman.
Minister for Excise, Sports, Tourism, and Culture Dr. V. Srinivas Goud will conduct a review meeting with government officials and HCA members on the arrangements to be made for the scheduled cricket match in Uppal stadium at 3.00 PM, today (22.09.2022).
Earlier, Minister Srinivas Goud underlined that they would not accept the sale of black tickets under any circumstances. He advocated making the tickets available to fans in accordance with HCA standards.
It is worth noting that, after three years, the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium is hosting the international match. In the three-match T20I series, the third T20I match is scheduled to take place in Hyderabad on September 25. On September 15, the tickets were live on the Paytm app, but they were sold in minutes.
For offline tickets, people waited at the Gymkhana grounds. They had been queuing since the early hours of the morning to get the tickets. Once ticket counters were opened, a large crowd rushed into the counters, resulting in a stampede.
