Rs 163/ticket for Hughes Tribute Match

The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has set a ticket price of Rs 163 for the Phil Hughes Tribute Match which will be held on April 11 at the Tribhuvan University Stadium.

 

CAN is hosting the Tribute Match in a unique gesture to respect Hughes who had died on November 29 after succumbing to a head injury which he sustained after he was hit a lethal bouncer during a Sheffield Shield match against Southern Australia on November 27.

 

Hughes, playing for New South Wales, was hit by the rising delivery from Sean Abott and was batting on 63 not out. The game will be played for over 63 overs (31.3-overs-a-side) forming two teams combined from the Nepali national players and visiting Australia cricketers.

 

New South Wales and Sydney Thunder player Ryan Carters has already confirmed his participation in the Tribute Match. Cricket Australia Chairman Wally Edwards will also grace the match which will be followed by an expedition to Mt Everest where Hughes’ bat and jersey will be place at the top of the world.

 

To make the sales more accessible, CAN is also making online selling for the tickets which could be bought from esewa. Tickets can also be bought from the CAN office in TU Stadium and Mulpani.
