Reportedly, only 35 per cent of the tickets were sold for
the first match.

unsold for the second T20I match as well. Some of the fans are also finding it
difficult to purchase tickets online.

Stadium in Karachi, where they discussed the possibilities to open free entry
for fans in the upcoming ODI series, sources said.
They will make the announcement in this regard after the
conclusion of the T20I series.
