New Delhi: The South Australian government is expecting around 20,000 Indian travellers for the marquee clash of the 2015 World Cup between fierce rivals India and Pakistan scheduled at the revamped Adelaide Oval on February 15.
The general tickets were sold out in 12 minutes for the mouthwatering match at the 50,000 plus capacity stadium but fans still can buy holiday and business packages, said John Rau, Deputy Premier of South Australia. (ICC Raises World Cup Prize Money)
