Ind vs Pak Match Ticket: Experience the thrill of a high-stakes cricket match between two cricketing giants!

New Delhi. Planning to watch the India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup match in New York? Be prepared to spend a fortune. The premium "Diamond Club" seats for this high-stakes match are priced at an astonishing $10,000, which comes to approximately Rs 9,00,000 with taxes. This hefty price tag has left many fans reconsidering their options.

Interestingly, for the same amount, you can enjoy a luxurious holiday in Barbados, including a top-tier cricket match between Australia and England. Here's the breakdown: two return tickets from New York to Barbados cost around Rs 50,000 each, a four-night stay in a four-star hotel costs approximately Rs 60,000, and two "Club Open Air" tickets for the Australia vs England match are about $650 each (approx. Rs 1,08,000). Altogether, this vacation package totals around Rs 2,70,000, leaving enough budget to include kids or extended family members.

Cheaper options are still available

Despite the steep prices, tickets for the India-Pakistan match on June 9 are still available. Only the "Pavilion Club" section is sold out, with three other categories still open for purchase. In comparison, even the next best category in New York is priced at $2,750, which is still quite high but closer to the cost of a holiday in Barbados plus cricket tickets.

Availability of other India match tickets

For other matches involving India, the organizers have released more tickets. As of May 27, nine categories of tickets are available for the India vs Ireland and India vs USA matches. Tickets for India vs Canada in Florida also remain available in three categories. This continued availability suggests that the International Cricket Council (ICC) may have miscalculated its ticket pricing strategy.

Consider Barbados holiday instead

For those contemplating splurging on the premium seats for the India vs Pakistan match, it might be worth considering a beachfront family holiday in Barbados instead. It offers not only relaxation and adventure but also a chance to watch a top-tier cricket match for a fraction of the price.

Low demand for premium tickets

Despite various incentives like VIP parking, breakfast, pitch-side access, Q&A sessions with cricket legends, and private champagne lunches, the $10,000 tickets for the India-Pakistan match haven't sold out. This lack of demand is evident, as many tickets are still being sold on social media platforms with few buyers.

With twenty teams competing across the USA and West Indies, the ICC faces the challenge of ensuring packed stadiums. The continued high availability of tickets, even for high-profile matches.
