There will be a big scramble for tickets of the one-day cricket match between India and Pakistan at Feroze Shah Kotla stadium as it could have space for only 30,000 spectators, including around five thousand seats reserved for Pakistani visitors.
The ongoing work in the stadium, which after completion could accomodate a maximum of 50,000 spectators, will have to be halted by the end of this month to give finishing touches to make it ready for the match on April 17, Delhi District Cricket Association president Arun Jaitley told reporters on Saturday.
He said the pitch for the one-dayer was being prepared by the curator of the ground under the supervision of former Indian opener Chetan Chauhan.
The match strip would soon be inspected by an expert team from the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
