Cricket Australia tickets for SCG Test: A whole new bunch of guidelines have been put forward regarding the tickets of the third Test.
In what has come as a great reprieve for the sport and the two participating teams, the forthcoming third Test between Australia and India will be played in front of a 25% capacity of spectators at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The development was made public via an official statement from Cricket Australia which also announced the cancellation of the existing tickets for the Test match.
The same means that existing ticket-holders will receive a full refund (including all associated costs). In addition to the same, they will also be part of a priority slot to participate in the re-ticketing process from this afternoon.

“In response to the public health situation in NSW, we are working closely with Venues NSW and NSW Health to put appropriate biosecurity measures in place for our staff, players, match officials, broadcasters and fans to ensure we play the third Test at the SCG safely.
“Reducing the capacity of the venue is crucial in achieving social distancing requirements, and we sincerely thank ticketholders for their patience, as we process refunds today, reconfigure the SCG seating plan to deliver these social distancing measures and go back on sale,” Cricket Australia’s acting CEO Nick Hockley said in a statement.
