If those passes were complimentary, that ought to have been mentioned on the ticket, said the Mayor.
Meanwhile, KTK has not submitted the tickets to the Grand Stand for sealing for the Saturday's match between Tuskers & Delhi Daredevils. So the hospitality pavilion will stay closed on Saturday. The visitor & host team owners as well as the official sponsors will must sit on the pavilion adjoining to the fans. The official sponsors had already registered their protest to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) & the team management on the issue. The owners of the KTK had also hinted the change of venue of the home matches from Kochi from the next season.
Sources close to KTK alleged that the delay in getting tickets sealed in a time-bound manner is affecting the sales. The sealing of tickets for the Saturday's match was done only on Thursday. It is impossible to sell the tickets on Friday owing to the hartal. So the ticket sales will be feasible only on the day of the match, said sources.
