ICC's pricing strategy for the New York match between India and Pakistan is resulting in many unsold tickets for the marquee clash.

Planning to watch India vs Pakistan in New York? Prepare to loosen the purse strings.

It will be cheaper to take a holiday to Barbados for a high-profile match like Australia v England, stay in a four-star hotel and return home via a direct flight. The “Diamond Club” seats for India-Pakistan were sold at a ridiculous price of $10,000, which will come to $10,863 (around Rs 9,00,000) including taxes.

The same amount of spending can get you two round-trip tickets from New York to Barbados (around Rs 50,000 each), a stay at a four-star property (around Rs 60,000 for four nights) and two Open Air Club tickets. » ($650 each – around 1,08,000) for the June 5 clash between Australia and England.

If you put it all together, a couple's vacation to Barbados and premium marquee seats will come to around Rs 2,70,000. So if you have kids or an extended family, you still have enough budget left over to welcome them as well. Even the second best category in New York costs $2,750 and the price will be a little closer to that of a couple's stay in Barbados + cricket.

It's no surprise that the biggest cricket match on the planet, between neighbors India and Pakistan, still has tickets available. Premium category tickets are still available for the June 9 meeting. CricketNext has been tracking ticket availability for the high-octane clash and only the 'Pavillion Club' is sold out – leaving at least three more categories still up for grabs. It should be noted that the hosts increased the price of VIP parking at Nassau County International Stadium from $200 (May 23) to $250 (May 27).

As for the other Indian matches, the organizers have made more tickets available. 'Standard Plus' category tickets for India vs Ireland and India vs USA were not available when checked on May 23. There were eight categories available for public purchase and the number is now (as of May 27) increased to nine categories for games in New York.

Almost all categories for India vs Ireland and India vs USA have tickets available and even India vs Canada in Florida has availability in three categories. India's first match – June 5 against the United States – is a week away, but the continued availability of tickets shows how wrong the International Cricket Council (ICC) has been in its strategy.

Even on May 28, there are many sellers of tickets for India matches on social media platforms and there are very few buyers. Unlike previous World Cups, there is very little activity on premium resale sites as availability on the official site remains high.

The ICC lures fans for a $10,000 India-Pakistan ticket with VIP parking, breakfast, pitchside access, Q&A with a cricket legend and a private champagne lunch, but even that has not yet been able to do the job for the world cricket body. .

Twenty teams will be in action across the United States and West Indies and ICC must pull up its socks in the home stretch of the tournament to ensure there are no empty seats on display. For those still thinking about premium seats for India versus Pakistan in New York, consider beachside family vacations to Barbados.
