India vs New Zealand Southampton tickets: ICC are said to be preparing for ticket sales for the sixth day and refund for washed out days.
During the fourth day of the ongoing final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton, the morning session has been washed out due to rain as inclement weather conditions continue to play spoilsport in the historic event.
Going by the weather forecast for today, it wouldn’t be a surprise if rain continues to pour down throughout the day. For any play to be possible on Day 4, weather will have to not just improve significantly but also remain the same for the rest of the day.
By now, fans all across the globe are aware of a reserve day for this match. Ideally, a sixth day was kept to cover up for only the lost overs from the first five days. However, given how many overs have been lost in this match, a full day’s play is due for Wednesday.
According to ESPNcricinfo, ICC (International Cricket Council) is planning to release tickets for the reserve day with preferential slots being for people who had bought tickets for a washed out day (Day 1).
“The ICC is preparing to release tickets for the sixth day. Preference would be given to those who already had bought tickets for the first day, June 18, which was a washout. The same would apply to ticketholders today in case Monday’s play, too, gets abandoned.
“The next in queue would be those who were unsuccessful in the ballot, which is open only to the UK citizens due to the travel restrictions during the pandemic,” read an updates on ESPNcricinfo’s live commentary.
