UAE has the facilities to ensure that this does not happen, everyone has Emirates ID which can easily be used and visitors can always use their passport number to buy tickets - there is no reason that tickets should not have the name and nationality printed on them or registered in a central system that also would prevent fake tickets.

IPL is a GREAT platform for betting, Match fixing, spot fixing business. This game help to encourage niche market so there is no surprise on these news. Authorities should take strict action to avoid such options

Ticketmaster site is not working properly.neither we can contact helpdesk!!
Charles, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
All the tickets purchased online or from outlets can be sold to anyone. Ticketmaster.ae or the IPL management should have sold the tickets with names printed so that it cant be transferred to anyone else. With this type of system, selling tickets in black is very easy
