Kanpur:

With barely 10 days left for the start of Sri Lanka's tour of India, the BCCI is still struggling to find a title sponsor for the Test series between the two countries.

The delay in getting the sponsor forced the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association to order the printing of tickets for the second Test match, scheduled here from November 24, with its own logo instead of a sponsor.

UPCA Director Jyoti Vajpayee said that the Cricket Board has not been able to find a title sponsor for the Test series, which begins with the first Test in Ahmedabad from November 16.

"After getting a BCCI's go ahead, we have ordered printing of tickets without sponsor logo," Vajpayee said. PD Pathak, another UPCA official, said the distribution of tickets to fans would not be delayed any more, adding that tickets will be sold through State Bank of India counters.
