I read somewhere that they where appointing a ticket agent on the 1st March?.The test tickets have only just gone on sale so i would imagine it might be a while yet.Although if its anything like football tournements then they want your money as early as possible.

ICC announced they were going on sale on March 1st, however received an email today telling me that date has been delayed - no news on the revised date yet

read the bottom of the page on this link to see what a local teravel company think:
www.reddottours.com/238/cricket-support ... rofile.htm
With ludicrously high priced 'hospitality' tickets just announced for the SL tests, and the warning from Red Dot, it's not looking great for those tthinking of getting guaranteed entry/advance tickets. If it was me I'd still pay on the door, as games that don't include the home team (SL) are still likely to be anything but a sell-out, and I'd still expect to find tickets available even if SL were involved. I'm of course talking about the 'expensive' tickets, in the region of say 1,000-1,500 rupees.

Thanks for the replies. Puts my mind at ease. I would suspect there would of been greater fanfare if they were being released today. Who organises the ticketing ICC or Sri Lanka Cricket?

InnoBystander is that some form world cup ticket mailing list, if so any idea of where you put yourself on it?

I signed on the the ICC register your details thing at the bottom of their travel website (www.icctravel.net/) (not that i would use an organised tour ever) and replied to the response - they were helpful but no date for the ticket launch was forthcoming

I emailed the ICC and got a somewhat terse response concluding (rather vaguely) that tickets may be released at end of March

Well Delhi to Colombo is a 3 hour flight (which gives you an idea of just how big India is!), and most othe big population centres are still a 'European-type' flight away. In recent times the Indians have not been great tourists (it's changing, of course) and the nearest Indians in the south of the country are generally Tamils, and often they didn't feel welcome either, recently :roll: . If you want to upset a Sri Lankan, ask them if they're Indian. I'll be surprised if the Indians are in SL in any great numbers ... :roll: :o

Good point, i forgot how massive Indai actually is.
Do you think our support will be greatly reduced due to us been in Sri lanka already this year,could effect our numbers.Plus i know a few England fans that are not keen on the T20 format as well.
