New Delhi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will get 1,000 spectator tickets and 100 VIP tickets for the upcoming India-Pakistan cricket match in Delhi, the Lok Sabha was informed on Tuesday. In all other venues, both these numbers would be halved, Minister of State for Home M. Ramchandran said in a written reply.
The minister said the India-Pakistan cricket series from Dec 25, 2012 to Jan 6, 2013 would involve three One-Day internationals and two Twenty-20 matches. He added that Pakistani spectators would be allowed to enter and exit India only through Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai (by air) and Attari (by bus and train).
No permission would be given for crossing on foot through Attari and by train at Munnabao, he said. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would also suggest to PCB the list of hotels at each venue where the Pakistani spectators can be accommodated, he said.
