It's SL and it's (some minor form of) cricket, so even I'm tempted (not so much by Colombo, but the chance to get to Pallekele or even a look at Hambantota for a SL game), even though the format turns me off. I'd expect a few to go, but in no-where near the numbers for the coming tests.

Hi there all - new to the forum.

We are travelling over for the semis & final and then heading off on a tour round the Island so I contacted our tour operator to see if they could obtain an update.

Their local rep has been on to the SL Cricket Board who have advised tickets should now be on sale on 27 March, so accords with the ICC message earlier in the thread.

be aware that the first tickets to be released (like those now announced for the tests) are the hospitality ones, and will be targeted at us westerners. There will be some demand for the finals (obviously) so good luck

Cheers - yes, given it's the latter stages, planning to just punt for whatever comes on-sale first to ensure we're in there.

I wonder if they will go on sale when the qulifier teams are known,think the qualifiers are in Dubai?
Then they can print both teams on the ticket ie England v Ireland for example rather the England v Q1 etc

Just a thought!

Those prices are excellent. Cheapest tickets for group games $US0.25, and even cheapest tickets for final $US2.50. Not doubt most of these will be snapped-up by locals who have a 4 day start, but fair play to them they deserve it. Even so all tickets will be cheap prices. I went to Barbados two years ago, and they had a similar cheap pricing ticketing policy - hence full grounds. The ICC are learning and getting it right after the 2007 ODI world cup disaster.

Agree completely.

... so with the 20/20 or ODIs being most popular in SE Asia, who are they kidding that the March/April test tickets will be priced as '#stupidmoney' :roll:

This sounds like a daft question but when the online sales start and you purchase your ticket,it says collection starts from the 1st August from these moneygram outlets and a passport must be shown for ID (which is fair enough).
Will they keep hold of your tickets so you can collect them the day before the matches (like timeoutdubai did) i'm sure they will as people wont arrive untill mid sept anyway but it seemed a bit unclear to me.

Good timing if your already there for the 2 tests though just go to galle face green and grab the 800 free tickets and run.. :lol:

The booking fee for using a credit / debit card could well be more then the price of the ticket?
