India vs Australia 3rd T20I

The third and final T20 match between India and Australia will be played in Hyderabad on 25 September. With this, the sale of tickets for this match has started and there is a huge demand for it.

The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) had decided to sell tickets offline at the Gymkhana ground for the match, but they probably did not expect thousands of people to come here to collect tickets. It was being claimed through social media that people have come to get tickets since 5 am early in the morning and the line is increasing continuously.

All the people were hoping that the ticket counters will open as soon as possible and they could take the tickets and go back to their homes, but the queue continued to grow. It became incredibly difficult for the authorities to handle such a crowd which led to a stampede.

People were queuing hungry and thirsty since morning. The queue was increasing continuously, due to which many people got angry. On seeing the commotion errupted there, the police had to lathi-charge the cricket fans. A source told Times Now that the stampede left four people with serious injuries and were immediately taken to a local hospital.

It has also been claimed that some policemen and some people were hurt due to the stampede, due to which they fainted on the spot.
