Now Firoz Shah Kotla is all set to host semifinal Of the ICC World T20 on 30 March. The Delhi and District Cricket Association got the clearances to use the RP Mehra Block. The tickets for the semifinal match will be available for booking from Saturday , 26 March, DDCA Vice President Chetan Chauhan said.
There was a doubt that the World T20 semifinal which scheduled to be held in Delhi on March 30 may be shifted from Firoz Shah Kotla as the DDCA’s plea to use the RP Mehra block was dismissed by the Delhi High Court on Tuesday. “All the doubts have been cleared now. The permission to allow the Mehra block has been given to us by the court until December 2017. We will make the tickets available online from March 26 through the site bookmyshow.com.” Chauhan said
The disputed block has a seating capacity of around 2,000. The DDCA withdrew its petition seeking a direction to the SDMC to certify the block, which has not been used in the World T20 matches that has taken place at the Kotla so far.
