India vs England: Second Test Ticket Sales Start on Monday, Minimum Price Rs 100

The MA Chidambaram Stadium's three stands -- I, J and K -- will be thrown open to spectators for an international match for the first time since 2012, when it hosts the second India-England Test from February 13. The three stands were sealed after the 2011 World Cup owing to various issues, depriving the city the opportunity to host matches at various events, including the World T20 in 2016 and the IPL final in 2019. An exception was made when the stands were opened for an ODI between India and Pakistan in 2012. Tickets for the second Test, to be played there from February 13 to 17, will go on sale from February 8, Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) Secretary R S Ramasaamy said on Sunday.
