"We've been staggered by the interest shown by today's ticket sales," said Tournament Director Steve Elworthy, adding: "The allocation of tickets for India v Pakistan sold out in under 30 minutes, with tickets released for other matches, including the final, also selling-out. The tickets that were released today sold very quickly."

Indo-PakAdult tickets for the ICC Champions Trophy are priced in three categories -- Gold, Silver and Family Stand -- and range from £20 (for a group game in the Family Stands) up to £60 (Gold ticket for the Final).
