John Harnden, Chief Executive of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 said he wanted as many people as possible to experience the event.
“Australia and New Zealand last hosted the tournament in 1992 and since then it has become one of the biggest sporting events in the world,” Mr Harnden said.
“We’ve made sure the event is affordable with more than two-thirds of all tickets $50 or under. This is a great opportunity to see the world’s best cricketers right here in our own backyard."

“We expect high demand for tickets and we’re operating on a first come first served basis. Fans are encouraged to register early so they can get the seats they want,” Mr Harnden said.
