As a result, social media users have started questioning the authenticity of BookMyShow, the official ticketing partner for the World Cup 2023. They described the prices as “ridiculous” and demanded transparency regarding the number of tickets sold.

Despite the controversy, demand remains high for other India matches at the World Cup 2023. Tickets for India’s matches against Australia, England, and South Africa are also selling for high prices, ranging from ₹2.35 lakh to ₹2.85 lakh.
