Mohali: It is being labelled as the grand finale before the actual World Cup final. The electrifying mood here before the "mother of all clashes" - the India-Pakistan semi-final March 30 - sums it all. Common people, cricket lovers, media and even prominent political figures on both sides of the international border are making a last-minute dash to wangle passes as tickets have been sold out.
One thing is for sure, the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium will be more than a full-house March 30. With every passing hour, the black market prices of tickets are going up by a few thousand rupees.
"The PCA Stadium has got a crucial India-Pakistan match. We are expecting full stands on that day. There is a lot of craze among spectators for this match and our preparations are going on in full swing for this match," PCA joint secretary G.S. Walia told IANS.
