The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday clarified that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was offered 3,000 tickets for the brief limited overs series but they wanted fewer.

Reacting to media reports that Pakistani fans were stranded due to unavailability of tickets, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Sanjay Jagdale said, "We wish to clarify that the PCB had initially asked for 500 tickets each for their fans at Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Chennai and Kolkata, and 1,000 tickets for Delhi."

Jadgale said that PCB later cut down on the demand and said it didn't require any tickets for the two Twenty20 matches in Bangalore (Dec 25) and Ahmedabad (Dec 28) and only 25 tickets each for the first two ODIs in Chennai (Dec 30) and Kolkata (Jan 3).

"As far as the tickets for Delhi (Jan 6) are concerned, we are awaiting the delivery of tickets by the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA). They will be sent to the PCB as soon as they are received from DDCA," Jagdale added.
