One-day internationals returning to Karachi after ten years. A washout denying fans a chance of watching any cricket on Friday. This city prides itself as the most cricket-mad city in the country. Tickets should have been snapped up, right? Wrong.
ESPNcricinfo understands only around 20% of tickets have been sold so far. Anecdotal evidence made it clear that the uptake wasn't as swift as the PCB might have been hoping. It was made official when they announced ticket holders for the abandoned first ODI could attend either of the two remaining games. Moreover, the same applied to ticket holders for the second ODI; common sense would suggest if either of the games were anywhere near full houses, that would have been impossible to guarantee.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
