Heavy rush marked ticket sales for the November 12 tri-series day-night encounter between India and Australia at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here.

Cricket fans began to throng the Stadium from last evening itself and formed a serpentine queue which swelled to thousands when counters opened at 9 am today.

Up for grabs were 13,500 tickets for the public, including 1,500 for women, in the stadium with a capacity of 45,000.

The overenthusiastic fans were uncontrollable at times and police had a tough time to restore order. Barricades put up to segregate them from roads were targeted and grounded.

Tickets were sold out within a couple of hours, Karnataka State Cricket Association officials said.
