Touts and IPL


It is odd that large sections of the media did not report the black market in tickets during the Royal Challengers Bangalore-Chennai Super Kings IPL match in Bengaluru, something that should have been taken seriously. The fact that the stadium was not full and that touts outside were having a field day shows that no amount of policing can solve the issue.

Perhaps the organisers can introduce a system like the one followed in Tirumala. All ticket counters should be equipped with biometric scanning equipment which can match the ticket buyer with the user.

Such a system should be followed in the popular matches which will help genuine and eager cricket fans who are at the mercy of touts.
