Tickets for this year's World Twenty20 will be as cheap as $0.25 for group games and between $2.50 and $45 for the final. The ICC has announced the global sale of tickets for the tournament, which will be held in Sri Lanka, from today. The tickets can be bought online from the ICC's website. The low prices are in sync with those during the World Cup 2011, which drew large local audiences to the grounds.

Eight percent of the tickets available to the public are on sale now, with the remaining ones becoming available on August 1 to ensure availability closer to the event. There is a limit of six tickets that any one person can purchase for the group stage matches, and four tickets from Super Eights onwards. The tournament kickstarts with hosts Sri Lanka taking on Zimbabwe on September 18.

The attractive ticket pricing for the ICC event comes after Sri Lankan as well as visiting England supporters were angered by exorbitant prices for daily tickets during the ongoing England-Sri Lanka Test series.

Attendance to the group games of the women's World Twenty20 will be free of charge. The women's semi-finals and finals are scheduled on the same day and ground as the men's games and the tickets for the men's games will be valid for both.

Did you really buy 10 tickets but can't make it? PLEASE DONATE IT to some LOCAL school kids. I am sure Sri Lankan commenters here or google would help you find a school near where the matches are played.

What a bargain. If the ECB were hosting it it would be at least £40 for a group match.

These is great, always awesome to watch the games with the stadiums packed, and the Sri Lankan public really know how to create that festive atmosphere, almost like we have down here in East London, South Africa
