Cuttack T20 Tickets: The Odisha Cricket Association (OCA) made 12000 tickets available for sale on Thursday and Friday, with counters set up outside the stadium. In a first, the governing body set up two separate queues for women, while the other seven were for men.

Things escalated quickly as a scuffle ensued, with blows exchanged. The  ticket counters opened from 9 am on Thursday, but fans made a beeline outside the stadium to purchase tickets much before that.
