Fans having tough time in getting ticket refunds

New Delhi:

Delhi District Cricket Association have asked the agitated spectators of the India-Sri Lanka ODI, which was called off due to poor pitch on Sunday, to collect their ticket refunds from the Union Bank branches instead of the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.

DDCA President Arun Jaitely on Sunday had apologised to the spectators after the match was abandoned due to dangerous pitch conditions, and had said all gate tickets would be refunded.

However, the venue to collect the refunds was changed from the stadium to the bank branches and the notice at the stadium to this effect irked the spectators all the more.

"We came here to get our ticket refunds but we were told that we will get money from the banks. I will have to stay here few more days. I am very disappointed," said Shivram, a fan from northern UP.

A fan from Australia was also left with bad taste.

"It's pretty bad that they are sending us to the banks instead of the ground, where we should be given the refund. It's very disappointing. So we are not having good experience, about time watching cricket in India. So, it's very disappointing. We are pretty annoyed with the Delhi Cricket Board, " he said.

The game between India and Sri Lanka had to be called off after 23.3 overs of play on Sunday, leaving the fans angry.
