But, the ticket price for ODI, in general, is far higher than test tickets.
The same article says that the ODI ticket price was Rs, 3000 ($60) !!

Compare that to $2 for test tickets.
Yes, there were poor crowds for ODI hence the cheaper tickets for tests to try and get crowds in after they realised they priced the ODIs too high.

$2 is not something new. Test prices in India have always been low. I doubt they have ever gone above $10. Not like they slashed the prices due to panic for tests, prices have always been low to encourage the average indian to attend.

IIRC India v Aus 2001 had free tickets, it was free or extremely cheap.

Yeah, they reduced the test tickets from $4 to $2 because the $60 tickets didn't sell

Indian cricket authorities have terminated debt-ridden Indian Premier League side Deccan Chargers for failing to comply with a deadline for overdue player fees, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Saturday.

Among the leading players signed up by the franchise, which won the tournament in 2009 but finished second-last this season, are Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, South African fast bowler Dale Steyn and Australian batsman Cameron White.

The decision, the BCCI said in a statement, was "only due to the absolute inability of the franchise to effectively run the team".

The BCCI added due to the "stated position of the Deccan franchise to refuse to rectify the various defaults including payments to players... a decision was taken to forthwith terminate the Deccan Chargers franchise".

Deccan Chronicle Holdings, a media company that bought the team for $US107 million ($A102 million) before the inaugural IPL in 2008, sought to sell the cash-strapped Hyderabad-based team this week, having placed advertisements in newspapers inviting bids.

It received just one proposal when bids opened Thursday, which it rejected.

The company has been ordered by banks to reduce its debts, according to Indian media.

The rapid disposal of the Chargers has been widely blamed on economic pressure affecting its current owners, but it also reflects the stormy history of the IPL.

The BCCI threw the Kochi Tuskers out of the league last year over their failure to meet financial requirements.

A separate attempt to eject the Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab in 2010 over murky ownership disputes was blocked after a court battle.

The IPL has become a major event in the international cricket calendar, attracting the world's most exciting players to entertain large domestic audiences.

But it has also been hit by a series of financial scandals, and its founder Lalit Modi was sacked in 2010 following allegations of corruption and money-laundering.

The sixth edition of the IPL will be held in April-May next year.
T20 going strong in India, right?

Only a matter of time before the attraction fades and the interest flickers away.

Yes, because the former has not yet happened while the price reduction has already happened
In the earlier case, it was just a case of the acting CEO who said he will try to bring the test match back.

Er, where does that say IPL is in trouble.

It is Deccan Chronicle, owners of Deccan Chargers, who are in financial trouble - because of matters unrelated to T20 or cricket ... because of their debts in their core business
