Indore. The India-New Zealand ODI match to be held on January 24 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore has come under the scanner of controversies. The controversy has taken place regarding the black marketing of tickets for the match. In this case, a hearing was held in the High Court on the petition, in which petitioner Rakesh Singh Yadav said that more than 3 thousand tickets were sold in 1 minute and all the tickets were booked in five minutes, this is not possible. MPCA presented its stand after which the High Court has reserved its decision.

It may be known that the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association is constantly being pointed fingers at the black marketing of tickets for cricket matches being held in Indore, but this time the matter of black marketing of tickets has reached the High Court before the India-New Zealand ODI match. In fact, Congress leader Rakesh Singh Yadav had filed a petition in the High Court regarding black marketing of tickets, on which a hearing was held. Brian D’Silva, Senior Advocate, Jabalpur High Court, appearing for the petitioner, argued that the MPCA started online ticket sales on January 12 at 6 am. In ticket sales through Paytm and Insider site, 3 thousand 118 tickets were sold in just 1 minute and 1600 tickets were sold in next second minute and within five minutes 6 thousand 260 tickets were sold and in 15 minutes all cheap category tickets were sold. The sale was done, which is not possible in such a short time.

The petitioner argues that it takes one and a half to two minutes for a banking transaction and OTP to be generated, in such a situation, seventeen thousand tickets were sold in just 15 minutes. Booked. In this, many names and mail ids were used through hackers. Second, apart from Paytm and Paytm Insider, access was also given to a third site, from which lump sum tickets were purchased and payments were made to the MPCA.

In the last hearing, the High Court had directed the MPCA to produce the Excel sheet of authorized ticket bookings of all 17,000 tickets booked through Paytm and Paytm Insider site, along with the verification of the booking company, but Rohit Pandit, CEO, MPCA, submitted about 495 The information of online booking of names was typed on plain paper and presented before the High Court. This information was presented by giving an affidavit through Secretary Sanjeev Rao, the complete record was not made available to the court.

In this case, MPCA’s lawyer Ajay Bagadia says that MPCA had given the responsibility of selling tickets to Paytm Company. Tickets have been sold through that. We have provided the information of each ticket to the court, and the sale of each ticket has been given with a particular person. As far as the sale of more than 3 thousand tickets in a minute is concerned, we argued that when the Tatkal ticket site of the Railways opens, tickets for thousands of trains are booked simultaneously in a minute. 3000 is less, more than this tickets can be sold in a minute, FIFA World Cup is an example, in this case the argument of the petitioner is baseless.

MPCA Chairman Abhilash Khandekar said that as far as black marketing of tickets is concerned, MPCA never does black marketing of tickets. When a person, after booking a ticket, does not go to watch the match himself, but sells his ticket at an expensive price, then what can the MPCA do with that. However, the High Court of Indore has reserved the decision after hearing both the sides. The complete complaint of this matter has also been sent to CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and BCCI.
