Sports| Between the demands of boycott match of India-Pakistan in World Cup, the craze among their fans still high. This match has been scheduled on June 16 in Manchester. Despite the capacity of 25,000 spectators in Old Trafford, more than 400,000 people have applied for tickets.

Top Indian cricketers like Harbhajan Singh have demanded the boycott of the round robin match against Pakistan, while veterans such as Chetan Chauhan want India to put pressure on the ICC by threatening to boycott the entire tournament.

ICC World Cup tournament director Steve Elworthy said during a promotion in London that the demand for tickets to match at the group stage between India and Pakistan is more than the match between England and Australia and the final in Lords.

ESPN Cricinfo said, “The number of tickets for this match (India vs. Pakistan) is more than 400000, which is a very large number. Only 25,000 audience can watch the match in stadium. So, many people might get disappointment.”

Elworthy said that between 230000 and 240000 people have applied for the match between England and Australia, while the number of applicants for the final is between 260000 to 270000.
