Ticket prices as low as Rs 50 for India-Bangladesh Eden Gardens Test

Kolkata: India’s first-ever Day-Night Test here against Bangladesh is expected to begin at least an hour early than the usual 2.30pm start, Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Avishek Dalmiya said here on Tuesday.

The CAB is also trying its best to make it a full house in the 68,000-capacity stadium on all the five days by offering a daily ticket starting as low as Rs 50.

India is slated to play Bangladesh in three T20 Internationals and two Tests in November. The second Test will be held at the Eden Gardens starting November 22.

The ongoing third Test in Ranchi between India and South Africa has not drawn a lot of spectators to the ground despite it being Test Championship points up for grabs. India leads the three-match series 2-0 and is on course to complete a whitewash.

At Eden Gardens, ticket prices were brought down from 200, 150, 100 to 150, 100 and 50, secretary Avishek Dalmiya said after the Apex Council meeting.

“We want more people to come in. That’s why this move,” Dalmiya told reporters. He said that there are plans to give complementary tickets to junior cricketers of the state also.

In the meeting, it was decided that two committees — women’s selection committee and especially abled — will be formed to look after the respective divisions.

Unlike the traditional Tests, in the Day-night test the first break will be of a tea break of 20 minutes followed by a supper break of 40 minutes which would mean one-and-half session will be played under lights.

Avast said its researchers installed the three apps and successfully purchased subscriptions to each app. However, when they tried to use the VPNs, the apps only provided subscription options again.

The apps are available on the Apple App Store as Beetle VPN, Buckler VPN, and Hat VPN Pro, Avast said.

These three apps have been downloaded over 420K, 271K, and 96K times, respectively, between April 2019 and May 2020, according to data from Sensor Tower, a mobile apps marketing intelligence and insights company.

“Fleeceware apps fall into a gray area, because they are not malicious per se, they simply charge users absurd amounts of money for weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions for features that should be offered at much lower costs,” Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Head of Mobile Threats & Security at Avast, said in a statement.

The apps” all have high ratings, ranging from 4.6 to 4.8, and include enthusiastic reviews, all similarly written, which Avast considers may potentially be fake.
