Outside the ticket counter at the Ferozeshah Kotla ground, hours before the Sussex vs New South Wales match on Sunday, three men were seen trying to sell tickets they had bought in bulk earlier.

This is a common sight outside cricket stadiums in India. But here’s the catch: the tickets were being sold at a price lower than marked.

Turnouts at Champions League matches have been poor. With the tournament not getting the kind of response organisers had hoped for, tickets in Delhi are being sold at a discount.

“I was standing in queue when a man came up, trying to sell me Rs 400 tickets for Rs 350,” said Rahul Chadha.

Sunil Dahiya (name changed) said: “I needed four tickets for Rs 400 each. This man was selling them for Rs 350. I was worried whether the tickets were genuine but decided to go for them. I had no problems inside.”

“I’m not a black marketeer,” said one of the men selling tickets. “I was selling tickets I bought yesterday.”

“We have no idea about this,” said Ravi Jain, member, Delhi and District Cricket Association.
