Hyderabad: Day After Stampede, Chaos Again at Gymkhana Ground for India vs Australia 3rd T20I Match Tickets (Video) | 📰 LatestLY

Hyderabad, September 23: Chaos prevailed for a second consecutive day at Gymkhana Grounds Secunderabad on Friday as cricket fans who had booked online tickets for the T-20 international match between India and Australia had to return disappointed.

Those who had purchased the tickets on Paytm for the T-20 International match to be played at Rajiv Gandhi Stadium here on September 25 gathered at Gymkhana Ground on Friday morning to get physical tickets.

The fans were reportedly informed by the Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) to collect the physical tickets after showing the QR code, along with identity proof and a photograph.
