The T20s and ODI will represent a final chance for Pakistan and New Zealand fans to see their teams in action in Dubai before next year’s World Cup.

And with tickets starting from Dh30, organisers are keen to see as many people turn up for what will be a promising series.

 

 

Dubai Sports City general manager – sports business, Maqbul Dudhia, said: “Both teams are very strong and some of the best inter­national players will be on show. They both play the short games very well and there are some big hitters and wicket-takers in both teams, so it promises to be thrilling encounters.

“And with the T20 series being played back-to-back on a Thurs­day and Friday night, as well as it being alongside the UAE national holidays, it’s a perfect opportunity to bring the family and friends and be entertained in what will be the last international games at Dubai Sports City for the year.

“The atmosphere inside the stadium is always good. When Pakistan played Australia in October, we had the matches sold out and this isn’t new as all our limited-over games sell out very quickly given that it’s very popular with the fans.

“So I advise people to buy their tickets early to avoid disappoint­ment.”

Among the players likely to feature are Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi and New Zealand’s Corey Anderson, who shot to fame by scoring the fastest century in ODI history by reaching the three-figure mark off just 36 balls against West Indies.

Tickets are available at the Dubai Sports City box office next to the Dubai Stadium, plus selected Jacky’s and Samsung retail outs, and a host of locations across the UAE including Sharjah Cricket Sta­dium and Abu Dhabi Cricket Club. Alternatively, tickets can be bought online at www.ticketmaster.ae.
