There's hardly any information on how to buy tickets online for the fifth and final one day international between India and New Zealand at Chidambram stadium in Chennai, on 10th December 2010. We still have over a fortnight to go and you can expect a public announcement from authorities this week or the next. meanwhile, you can contact Tamilnadu cricket association directly and hope for an answer asap. their address is :-

Tamilnadu Cricket Associations
M.A. Chidambaram Stadium
Victoria Hostel Road, Chepauk, Chennai - 600005.
Phone : 91 44 28544175. Fax : 91 44 28552677

Update : Tickets are available at the venue, to be sold on first come first served basis, from 5th Dec (Sunday) onwards. Tickets range from Rs 200 to Rs 500 to even Rs 5000. Capacity of stadium is around 50,000

Latest update: There is lot of construction work is on progress at Chepauk, so there is bit of doubt for 5th ODI at Chennai. Thats why plenty of delay in announcing ticket sale!! Hope things will favour Chennai fans.

Commented by bramma on 01 Dec, 2010


Commented by Sathish on 01 Dec, 2010

Its very very poor for issuing the tickets.

Commented by Mat on 01 Dec, 2010

Dec 2 10 AM: Just now I called TNCA and they are telling that they are not going to issue today and will let us know the date through newspaper :(

Commented by Ramesh on 01 Dec, 2010

I think there wont be online booking for this time too... Too late for d announcement... Rain may threaten us....

Commented by jsdn on 01 Dec, 2010

OFC. The climate in chennai is rainy for the past few days and the schools n colleges have also closed due to rain. Am afraid, that if it prolongs ??????????!!!

Commented by ganesh on 02 Dec, 2010

These guys are useless. Bangalore has has to get tickets available online! Every time for a TNCA match, we have to stand in line like beggars for a few hrs and then the tickets get sold out.... When will TNCA learn that the Internet is a convenient medium for sale?

Commented by Satish on 02 Dec, 2010

Ticket will be issued only after december 10!!!!!!!!!!!!

Commented by sesha on 02 Dec, 2010

Friends the reason they do not open internet booking is this.. If this happens, then most of them will get tickets easily from home.. There will be no consideration for those who stand in queue from morning 6...

Commented by yogesh on 03 Dec, 2010

Are the people who stand in line going to get ticket that costs above 1500 or 1000? so its ok to sell those tickets online right..

Commented by LAKSHMANAN on 03 Dec, 2010

hai guys am also waiting for that. but i went two time in stadium they told me we will announce through newspaper. Then i went dec 2 and ask the security he told me will issue dec 3 or 5

Commented by Karthi on 03 Dec, 2010

Call up TNCA, through phone.. after listening they are just banging the phone... without any answer. it is a insult... and see how people are there .... i dont think we will be a developed nation in future.

Commented by Prabhu on 03 Dec, 2010

3rd Dec: I called TNCA this morning and they told me that the ads would come out on papers tomorrow and the sale will begin on Sunday.

Commented by govindan on 03 Dec, 2010

Commented by govindan on 03 Dec, 2010

Commented by shankar on 05 Dec, 2010

Refunds will only be made if the match is cancelled without a single ball being bowled. the view of cricket stadium and its seating arrangement can see in the following website -

Commented by ganesh on 06 Dec, 2010

@nikhil: A stand view is decent. will be midwicket or 3rd man was formerly known as cognizant stand. Seats in the upper tier will be far better. they cost 1500 for Dec 10 match but 1000 for WC matches

Commented by nikhil on 07 Dec, 2010
