I am sure others noticed that on viewing the crowd at the final in Mumbai, there were very few if any non wealthy indian fans in the ground. I understand that the tickets were priced around 14000 rupes. The situation that is left is that genuine indian fans, who should have been given the chance to witness such a great event, were left in a position where they would never afford such a ticket. The result then is that every member of the crowd was there because they could afford to witness history, or were enjoying the corprorate band wagon.
Another ICC/BCCI shambles, preventing genuine working class fans from being at the final.

Whilst it appeared that most people were well dressed, I'm not sure that you can categorically state that they were all affluent. Some tickets were considerably cheaper, Wickets got one at 5000R, and Mumbai is notably the 'richest' city in India.
TBH it would have been the same here, I dread to think what we would charge for a WCF ! Your guess ?

Right, India has the 2nd best economy in the world, like Sunderland has the 2nd best economy in England.

Like every other country on that list, the problem is the disparity between the richest and poorest people in every country.
