Cricket fans up in arms against ticket price, on the last day of the test

On the last day of the third match between India and England, with the hosts just one wicket away from defeat, Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and Trent Bridge Stadium have upset the fans by charging £10 a ticket.

India is expected to win the third test match in England by a huge margin. England managed to put up 311 runs on the board at the end of day 4, but still need to score 210 runs with just 1 wicket remaining.

Since the match is expected to be a very short one, and could even last as long as one delivery, fans felt that ten quid is too high a charge. People took to twitter and other social media to express their displeasure at the decision to charge such a high amount for only minutes of entertainment.

Nottinghamshire CCC defended their decision, stating “we always think long and hard about day five pricing when we go on sale each October. Sometimes you’ll see a full day, sometimes a few overs.”
