Empty seats mock fans
The unavailability of tickets for the third ODI between Bangladesh and West Indies led to chaotic scenes at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday morning as fans broke the window panes of the BCB headquarters at the stadium and also those of the adjoining National Cricket Academy.
The severity of the rioting halted traffic in the area for some time. The situation was eventually brought under control by police before noon.
An almost flawless performance by the Bangladesh cricket team in Khulna, which gave the Tigers a rare opportunity for a series win, was bound to attract a full house for the third game of the five-match series. As expected the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), through a press release sent on the eve of the match, announced that the tickets for the match were sold out. . . . . . . . http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesig...php?nid=260143
