If you compare the cost of tickets of the Pepsi IPL matches across the country,you will be compelled to draw one conclusion:Ranchi is the costliest.

Yes,the tickets that were available for Rs200-500,are to being sold in Ranchi for Rs 700.Why?

“In Ranchi only two matches are to be played.It is possible that the Kolkata Knight Riders deemed it fit to charge more here”,says an official of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association owned International stadium where these matches are to be played on May 12-14.

But this logic does not hold ground in the light of the fact that in Raipur where two IPL matches are slated to be played,the ticket is available for Rs 500.In Kolkata it was available for just Rs 300.
