Sealed stands released for IPL qualifier and final
The three newly-constructed stands with an estimated capacity of 12,500 were sealed by the municipal authorities in August last year for violation of "development control rules".
The empty stands on the western side made for a poor backdrop and there was even a rumour that the concluding two games of the IPL would be shifted to another venue.
A TNCA press release here on Thursday said: "The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association is pleased to inform the public that the G, H and I stands will be opened to public for the Qualifier Match II Friday and Final Sunday.
"The tickets for the three stands have been priced at Rs. 500 and Rs. 750 for the lower and upper tiers, respectively."
The tickets will go on sale on Friday morning for both the matches, the release added.
