I'm hearing that Block B is now showing on Kyazoonga as "sold out." The adjacent C and C1 are still available, the latter of the two costing only 500 Rupees for a 5 day pass.

Some friends of mine have bought tickets for F1, which is the closest to being behind the bowler's arm available for non-members. This area is also 500 Rupees. They made the point that despite past history of dealing with Kyazoonga, the 500 Rupee tickets are cheap enough to make it worthwhile ordering in advance just in case that section (which looks pretty small) also sells out. If the Kyazoonga pick-up process looks too stressful and time consuming, they'll just go and buy a ticket locally. Hard to argue with that approach really.

I'm pretty sure F1 is where we all had tickets for the World Cup game before it was shifted to Bangalore. It does look to be a decent area from which to view.
Most people i know are looking at Block B & buying them out there & if it's sold out in there it looks like all change to F1.
I get there early morning Sunday 2nd so have nearly 3 full days to sort. Even in India that should be long enough :shock:

Major schoolboy error from the boy Kev, can't see him coming back from that one, shame.

I was going to buy a couple tickets in advance for block c just in case as block b has sold out.

As we dont arrive untill the early hours on 5th. would any one who is going to collect tickets in advance be prepared to collect mine for me to save the inevetable bun fight on the first morning?

there's a beer or two in it if anyone can?

If Kyazoonga's pick-up process is the same as for the World Cup, you will probably need to do it in person unless you can get someone to order a ticket for you. At the World Cup they wanted to see a passport and the credit card used to book! I don't think I had to show the credit card every time, but I certainly did have to show my passport.

When you go to pay for the tickets you have the option to state if you are collecting them in person or a representative will be collecting them on your behalf.

You then have to name the representative, with all these things they probably want their life history as well :-)

Having problems with Kyazonga website today. Bought tickets for first two days a couple of days ago and now trying to buy for last 3 days. F1 G C all showing availability. Get as far as credit card page but won't let me complete. Anyone else having trouble? Alternatively where can I buy tickets locally? :(

At the Ground. That's what we'll be doing.

Speaking to one of the well informed locals there are always tickets at the ground either at the offices or touts, but rarely is it sold out.

Anyone know where the official BA will be?
