Cricket Australia has witnessed an unprecedented surge in ticket demand for the Border-Gavaskar Tests on the first day of sales for the upcoming Australia cricket summer. The five-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy series has seen a remarkable 67% increase in demand compared to the previous highest for an India Test series in 2018-19.

As expected, Boxing Day at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) emerged as the hottest property, attracting cricket enthusiasts from all corners. Additionally, the Sydney New Year’s Test, bolstered by the iconic McGrath Day activities, experienced strong ticket sales, reflecting the fans’ eagerness to be part of the annual charitable event.

Brisbane also saw a significant uptick in interest, with numerous fans expressing their excitement to revisit the Gabba, where India famously clinched a historic victory in the 2020-21 series. The strong sales in Brisbane highlight the ongoing popularity and competitive spirit of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

The overwhelming response underscores the anticipation and enthusiasm surrounding this series, promising an electrifying atmosphere across all venues.
