Australia in India, 7 ODI series - how to buy match tickets

Tag India vs Australia

Its not like in UK, where all visiting teams play matches at popular venues like Lords,Oval or Edgbaston. Its not even like Australia were just 9 of gounds has got the test status.. but its about India ~ an lot bigger & even crazier country to watch cricket matches.

Topic in hand today is Australia playing 7 one day international series against home team India from 29th Septermber to 17th October & finishing with one off twenty20 match at Brabourne stadium in Mumbai. The itinerary will move Aussies cricketers to all length & breaths of India, and thus - buying tickets for those Ind v Aus ODIs is every cricket fan's need. How to do that.. let help you!!

Fact : BCCI is not an active organisation. Their policy to distribute International matches to all small & large cricket stadiums is understandable, but why don't they release the method to buy those match tickets online (through internet I mean), is simply un-understandable.

Option 1 : to buy India-Australia cricket match tickets is to stand in Q, around 5 days before the scheduled match at the respective stadium. The counters will open & tickets will be sold. That's the surest method I can tell you for now.

Option 2 : is for those Australian cricket fans coming to India. Cricket Australia's official site has formed a complete tour package for their fans & you can join former cricketer Terry Alderman (tour host) for this Australia's tour of India. Australian sports tour is the site you need to consult.

Option 3 : is a costly, but purely online process to buy the tickets. This site is selling the match tickets for a long time, & probably all the tickets are gone.. but you can try your luck.

Option 4 : is me telling you the address, phone number & the email id of all those cricket stadium authorities where the matches will be played. If all the above 3 options fail, may be a crazy cricket fan in you can try pinging the officials to book your seat.
