As fans frantically sought to book seats to watch Tendulkar play his 200th and final Test from November 14th, Kyazoonga.com, the website selling 5,000 tickets, crashed on Monday, soon after tickets went on sale at 11 a.m.
KyaZoonga was appointed the official ticketing partner for the second Test between India and West Indies, which will begin on November 14, by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).
The prices of the tickets are Rs. 500, Rs. 1000 and Rs. 2500. Only two tickets per person can be booked online.
The Wankhede can hold 32,000 spectators, but more than 80 per cent of the tickets are not sold to the public. Around 6,000 tickets are kept aside for 300 affiliated clubs, another 6,000 go to the five gymkhanas and 6,000 more are handed to the Garware Club.
Apart from these, a few thousands are distributed as complimentary tickets, most of them being cornered by government agencies like the BMC and police.
