Hyderabad: At least six fans, including two women sustained minor injuries in a stampede at Gymkhana ground here, where the sale of offline tickets began on Thursday, for the third T20I match between India and Australia scheduled to be held at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Uppal on Sunday.

The injured were shifted to a corporate hospital, police said here.

There was a minor stampede at the ground where Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has opened two counters for selling the tickets.

The HCA should have arranged atleast eight to 10 counters at the ground but they set up only two counters, police said.

Taking serious action over the incident, Telangana Sports Minister V Srinivas Goud warned that stern action will be taken against those selling tickets in black market for the T20.

The Minister conducted a review meeting with the Association members over the arrangements for the match.

Goud also visited the stadium and sought a report on the capacity of the stadium and the sale of tickets so far.

Earlier, HCA issued a release stating that tickets will be available for offline purchase on September 22 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Gymkhana ground. People are waiting in queues from the wee hours onwards of today to buy the tickets.

On September 15, the online tickets sale through Paytm app was ended within minutes.
