New Delhi: Cricket’s grandest stage, the ICC ODI World Cup, is finally back, and this time, its home is none other than India.
Last time when the ODI World Cup was scheduled in India in 2011, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh were its co-hosts, unlike this time when India was the sole host of the tournament.
In 2011, MS Dhoni-led team India to win the entire thing through collective efforts and a bit of home advantage. This was the last time India won the World Cup, losing out in the semi-finals in both the 2015 and 2019 World Cup.
Since 2011, all three World Cups have been won by the host nations, i.e. India in 2011, Australia in 2015 and England in 2019.
So, with the chances of India’s decade-long wait for an ICC trophy finally coming to an end, all the cricket fans in the country want to witness this grand event in person from the stadium.
However, the technical glitches on the website and app of the official ticket booking partners for ICC ODI World Cup 2023, i.e. BookMyShow.com, is leaving the fans in a state of frustration, and they are showing their disappointment through their posts on social media platform X (formerly Known as Twitter), in the hope that either BookMyShow or the organizers of the tournament can see and resolve their issues.
Check out their reactions below:
I think the most rubbish system of the World Cup Ticket Booking was this time via #BookMyShow
