The offline ticket sale for the contest began on Thursday, November 30 at 10 am IST, and the fans showed an excellent response to the same.
On Thursday morning, fans were spotted in big queues at the ticket sale windows of the stadium to get their hands on the tickets. It is noteworthy to mention that the pricing of the tickets starts from INR 750. On the higher side, the tickets range up to INR 20,000, which includes hospitality and corporate stand tickets.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has also made the tickets available online through PayTM Insider. The online tickets, however, started selling for INR 3,000 onwards.

India-Australia T20I series experiences high-scoring contests
The ongoing series has been a treat to watch for the fans, as all the three games held so far have been high-scoring ones. All the games held at Vizag, Trivandrum, and Guwahati have seen the team batting first score at least 200 runs against the opposition. In fact, the lowest total of the five-game series has been 191/9 by Australia, which came in a losing cause against the Men in Blue's 235/4 in the first innings at Trivandrum.
On top of that, all the games have gone down to the 40th over of the match. The third T20I saw the Aussie snatch victory from the Suryakumar Yadav-led side, as they pulled off 43 runs off the last two overs courtesy of Glenn Maxwell's blitzkrieg (104 off 48). Now, the teams will be playing fourth T20I at the Shaheed Veer Narayan International Cricket Stadium in Raipur on Friday.
Given the boundary dimensions and batting-friendly nature of the surface at Chinnaswamy, a similar thriller and a contest with an assemblage of runs can be expected when the teams lock horns for the curtain drawer in the garden city on Sunday.
