Tickets for the group-stage match of the 2022 T20 World Cup between Pakistan and India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on October 23 have been sold out a few hours after being put up for sale.

As per the International Cricket Council (ICC), the tickets went on sale at 6:00 am PST on Monday and by 11:30 am, the ICC website said that the “public allocation of tickets” for India against Pakistan “was exhausted”.

However, the ICC announced that the fans can join the waitlist in case any tickets are released prior to the match.

“Tickets may still be available through the Official Hospitality and ICC Travel and Tours Programs. Alternatively, you can join the Waitlist for this match and receive email updates with details of any ticket releases for a specific match,” the cricket’s governing body said.

Another encounter: Pakistan, India to clash at MCG in 2022 T20 World Cup on Oct 23

As per The Sydney Morning Herald, over 60,000 pre-sale tickets for the Pakistan-India group match had already been sold before going public.

This would be the second time in one year that the two arch-rivals meet at the biggest stage of cricket.

Pakistan had emerged victorious the last time the two sides faced each other in the T20 World Cup clash in Dubai last year.

This was Pakistan’s first victory over India across World Cup events.

Pakistan, India to clash at MCG in 2022 T20 World Cup on Oct 23

  • The two sides met last year in Dubai when Pakistan thrashed India by 10 wickets
  • Pakistan, India, South Africa and Bangladesh are clubbed in Group 2

MELBOURNE: Pakistan and India will lock horns in a blockbuster T20 World Cup group clash for the second year running after the fixtures for the October-November 2022 tournament in Australia were announced on Friday.

The arch-rivals will lock horns at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on October 23, a day after Australia begin their title defence against New Zealand in Sydney -- a repeat of the 2021 final in Dubai where Aaron Finch's team won their maiden crown.

The 16-nation tournament will begin on October 16 with Sri Lanka facing Namibia in Geelong -- one of seven venues as Australia hosts for the first time.

"Our planning was ultra-detailed last time and knowing what the groups look like nine months out is really helpful because it can help your level of detail in that planning phase more and more," Finch said.

"It's a tough group though, and when you throw in qualifiers like the West Indies and Sri Lanka, you've got to play really well to get out of that group stage."

The top two teams from both Group A and Group B in the preliminary first round will join the automatically qualified nations in the Super 12 stage.

England, New Zealand, Australia and Afghanistan have been drawn together in Group 1.

India, Pakistan, South Africa and Bangladesh are clubbed in Group 2.

The spotlight will be on the Group 2 India-Pakistan contest at the MCG, with the two in recent years only meeting in multi-nation events.

Pakistan recorded their first win over India in World Cups last year in Dubai when they hammered Virat Kohli's team.

The Sydney Cricket Ground will host the first semi-final on November 9 while the second last-four clash will be held at the Adelaide Oval.

The final will be played at the MCG on November 13 under lights.

The tournament will begin with a six-day preliminary stage of two four-team groups.

Sri Lanka and Namibia in Group A, and West Indies and Scotland in Group B will be joined by four qualifiers yet to be determined.

Australia had been due to host the T20 World Cup in 2020 but it was delayed two years because of the coronavirus pandemic with India retaining the 2021 edition -- though that edition had to be shifted to Dubai because of Covid.
