Yes, majority do prefer ODI/T20's but pretty much just in sub-continent countries, In England/Australia all the test matches are pretty much sold out, at least all the games played at Lords are, but when you have that same Test match being played in India, it won't even draw half the stadium seats.

That should say enough, for all we know it's probably just the laborers filling up the seats in India, who buy cheap tickets just to pass the day by.

Totally different circumstances.
Do you post any opinions that aren't the recycled garbage spouted by Darth in this thread? You're Canadian, you have no idea the ticket prices and you're arguing against an Indian in Jammy. Do you go out of your way to look foolish? Or is that just natural?

and as for this...

There is something called the internet

http://www.espncricinfo.com/india-v-...ry/539627.html

The INd vs NZ test at Bangalore was also priced at $2. I would know since I am from Bangalore

If the old thread was there, I would have shown you that I am saying the exact same thing for the past 2 years

Putting T20 in the same pedestal as tests is what others seem to be confrontational about. When all I am saying is that all three forms are of equal importance.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Do you read the links you post, included was a pic and info about poor ODI crowds between England and India

From the opening paragraph

Quote:
The decision comes after the low attendances during the recent India-England ODI series - 13,000 tickets were sold at the Wankhede Stadium, which seats 33,000.

Little for those living in metro city like Bangalore.
For IPL the ticket cost is close to around $30 and the ground gets full.

Yeah, that's true. India vs Eng ODI was poor crowd.
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.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Well, there's a good reason for $2. Historically, Indian stadiums have been quite poor, facility wise. Most of the people who are relatively well off try to avoid the stadiums, unless they get a VIP ticket, or something.

BCCI figured that since they don't usually make a lot of money from ticket sales, they decided to have a full stadiums filled with fans rather than a few rich people clapping here and there. Since the average working class Indian can't afford multiple working days of Test Matches at upwards of $30.

Even at normal prices, Test match tickets in India will be cheaper than western countries due to Purchasing Power Parity. The epic match between India and Australia in 2001 at Kolkata with 90000+ people cheering on wouldn't be the same if the decided to have the same prices as Eng, Aus.

Oh and boards usually don't make their money through ticket sales. So, I don't even know why you bought it up. Test matches will never sell out as quickly as T20s in India (depending on opponent).

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

it's 33 bucks a day for an adult here and 78 for a family general admission. that's about comparable to most sporting events here.

Yeah, most working class people India can't afford the time or money to attend more than a day of Test cricket, at regular prices.

Oh and Rated R - even at $2 the stadiums weren't filled with labourers, since even $2 (rs100) is a luxury for the average indian labourer. Most of them earn, on an average about 4000-5000 rupees a month, with which they have to run their families.
