The sale of tickets for the third T20 match between India and Sri-Lanka, to be played here on February 14, will begin tomorrow.
The tickets will be sold at 18 mee-seva centres for the match to be played at ACA-VDCA stadium on the outskirts of the city, a senior official of the district administration said today.

“Each mee-seva center is allotted 300 tickets of Rs 600 denomination and 100 tickets of Rs 300 denomination. To ensure transparency in sale of tickets in the mee-seva centers, the revenue officials will issue tokens to the first 400 people in the queue before mee-seva centers from 8 AM tomorrow and the token holders could purchase the tickets of either of the denominations (Rs 600 or Rs 300) and each person can buy only (one) ticket,” he added.
He said of these centers, those at China Gantyada, Suryabaugh, Asilametta and RK Beach would sell 425 tickets of Rs 600 and 150 tickets of Rs 300.
From Friday (February 12), the sale of tickets of other denominations would commence and the sale of these 12,000 tickers is apart from the sale of the tickets being done online and at ACA-VDCA stadium by the Andhra Cricket Association, the official added.
