ICC CWC 2019: New Zealand’s star all-rounder as a special request to all the Indians in the final
XtraTime Web Desk: Kiwi all-rounder Jimmy Neesham has pleaded the Indian fans to resell their tickets via the official platform if they don’t want to come and watch the World Cup finals to be played between New Zealand and England at Lord’s on Sunday.
“Dear Indian cricket fans. If you don’t want to come to the final anymore then please be kind and resell your tickets via the official platform. I know it’s tempting to try to make a large profit but please give all genuine cricket fans a chance to go, not just the wealthy,” Neesham tweeted on Saturday.
Thousands of Indian fans had bought the tickets for the finals, hoping Virat Kohli’s men would reach the summit clash. However, their hopes were dashed by the Kiwis who defeated the Men in Blue in the semifinal at the Old Trafford, leaving the Indian fans with a choice of either watching the summit clash between New Zealand and England or to skip it or resell their tickets.
Recently, the International Cricket Council (ICC) came out with a ‘return policy’ wherein fans can get a full refund if they return their tickets.
After Wednesday’s win, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson had also urged the Indian fans to support them in the finals.
