Now then

World Cup 2011: Fans left without tickets as website crashes | Cricket News | ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 | ESPN Cricinfo

"A Kyazoonga spokesperson said while the surge in traffic had been expected, the site had not anticipated its scale. When ticket sales for World Cup group matches first went live on June 1, 2010, there had been no issues over server capacity. The firm had expected the demand to be several times over for the knockout games, "maybe five to ten times over but not 100." There were even people knocking at the door of the Kyazoonga offices in New Delhi asking to purchase World Cup final tickets."

Anyone has idea, how much each ticket is sold for? (from that stock of 4000)... I need to know minimum price and black market price!!

@amish for you - market price from the article

"The ticket pricing at the Wankhede, according to the ICC's official ticket guide, is the most expensive across the World Cup. The price-range for the first match at the Wankhede on March 13, New Zealand v Canada, is between Rs 2500 to Rs 3750. The March 18 match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka ranges from Rs 5000 to Rs 7500. The World Cup finals tickets are priced between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000."

are you sure? called up Wankhede stadium and they said there was no such offer. I was thinking of going for the Sri Lanka vs new Zealand match at Wankhede if such an offer is there.
