Speaking to Gulf News, Maqbul Dudhia, General Manager, Sports Business of DSC, said: “We are very keen to support fans and ensure they are able to see all the matches. Hence we have devised a summer price range for the Twenty20 matches by setting ticket prices from just Dh 20.”

Tickets can now be purchased at www.timeoutticket.com, www.boxofficeme.com and www.tickets.virginmegastore.me.

“Twenty20 matches has drawn huge crowds and hence I would request everyone to get their tickets early as two of the finest teams in the world will be in action. It will be hard-hitting, action-packed and world-class T20 cricket on our doorstep,” added Dudhia.

The Dubai International cricket stadium has previously hosted Pakistan versus Sri Lanka and England versus Pakistan, winning accolades from players and officials.

“This series can be considered as an extension of the Eid celebrations. Taking the hot weather into consideration, the matches will be played only in the evening. All three T20 matches will start from 8pm. We will make sure that cool refreshments are available for the spectators to counter the daytime temperatures,” said Dudhia.
