TICKET sales for the three One-Day Internationals between West Indies and Pakistan at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence, will be sold at rock-bottom prices and will be available to the Guyanese public by month-end at the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) office on Regent Road.
Chronicle Sport confirmed yesterday that tickets are expected to cost $4 000 for the Red and Green Stands; $3 000 for the Orange Stand and $2 000 for the Grass Mound.
The three ODIs are scheduled for April 7, 9 and 11 from 09:30hrs daily.
The ODIs will be crucial, heading into the September 2017 cut-off date for the 2019 ICC World Cup qualification.
Pakistan are currently ranked eighth on the ICC ODI rankings table, the last automatic-qualification spot, with 89 points while West Indies are five points behind them in ninth position with 84 points.
If West Indies fail to get into the top eight spots by September, they must participate in the 2018 ICC World Cup Qualifier. That tournament is currently scheduled to be held in Bangladesh, although that may change if Bangladesh – currently ranked seventh with 91 points – gains an automatic qualification.
Last year when the two teams met in an ODI series on West Indies tour of the UAE, Pakistan won the series 3-0.West Indies were in turmoil from the start of the tour after coach Phil Simmons was sacked on the eve of the team’s departure to Dubai.
