The Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium here is all set to abuzz with a capacity crowd cheering India and Australia in the third One-Day International here on Saturday.
Even as most of the tickets are already sold out, some with higher prices are still up for grabs.
"We are expecting a packed (27,000 capacity) stadium on Saturday. The Chair block and the Students block tickets have been sold out," PCA Joint Secretary, GS Walia told reporters here.
"However, there are some tickets left in the VIP block valued at Rs 1,000 each, while a few tickets are also available for the Terrace block (Rs 4,000 each), AC Lounge (Rs 5,000 each) and the AC Boxes (Rs 7,500 each)," he informed.
With seven-match series levelled at 1-1, the interest among the fans has increased.
Walia requested the people not to fall into the trap of unscrupulous elements, who might sell the tickets at higher prices for the premium blocks, which at this stage were still available.
"The tickets have been available at the five designated branches of the Central Bank of India and at two centres at PCA Mohali. Tomorrow, the fans can purchase the tickets from the Bank's Mohali branch in Sector 70," he added.
Walia also said that tight security arrangements had been made for today's game.
