The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, a thrilling cricket extravaganza spanning nearly two months, is nearing its climax. The highly anticipated final match between the Gujarat Titans (GT) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is set to take place on May 28 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, ahead of this grand showdown, the Ahmedabad Police has taken a significant step to combat ticket black marketing, ensuring a fair and enjoyable experience for all cricket enthusiasts.
Recognizing the prevalence of ticket black marketing during IPL matches held in Ahmedabad, the city’s police department has issued a notice alerting the public and imposing strict regulations. The notice explicitly warns against selling tickets above the designated price, with stern actions promised against those found guilty of such malpractices. This measure aims to maintain the integrity of the ticketing process and prevent exploitation of fans.
Instances of ticket black marketing during previous IPL matches in Ahmedabad have prompted the police to take proactive measures. By raising awareness and enforcing strict penalties, the authorities aim to deter individuals engaged in unauthorized ticket sales. The notice will remain in effect until May 28, ensuring that the final match remains free from unfair practices.
To further safeguard the ticketing process, the Ahmedabad Police has imposed a limit of three tickets per person. This measure prevents hoarding and ensures that a greater number of fans have an opportunity to witness the gripping finale. The initiative seeks to discourage scalpers and unscrupulous elements from exploiting the enthusiasm and willingness of passionate fans to acquire tickets at any cost.
The IPL 2023 final will witness an exhilarating face-off between two formidable teams – Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans and MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings. Both teams have encountered each other twice in the current season. In the league match, Gujarat emerged victorious, defeating Chennai by five wickets. However, in the first qualifier, Chennai Super Kings redeemed themselves, securing a place in the final by defeating Gujarat. The stage is now set for an intense battle on May 28 as both teams vie for the coveted IPL title.
