New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham urges Indian fans to re-sell their World Cup final tickets to 'genuine cricket fans'
London, July 13 (IBNS): New Zealand cricketer Jimmy Neesham on Saturday urged Indian fans to re-sell their World Cup 2019 final tickets on official platforms so that 'genuine fans' could get an oppurtunity to watch the clash between the Kiwis and England on Sunday.
"Dear Indian cricket fans. If you don’t want to come to the final anymore then please be kind and resell your tickets via the official platform. I know it’s tempting to try to make a large profit but please give all genuine cricket fans a chance to go, not just the wealthy ," Jimmy tweeted.

New Zealand dashed India's hopes of winning third World Cup title by beating them in the rain-hit semi-final match of the tournament.
Indian team remained dominant across the group stage of the tournament when they topped the chart to reach the semis.

However, they received the jolt in the semi-finals of the tournament at the hands of Kane Williamson's side who will be playing their second consecutive World Cup this time.
In 2015, New Zealand were defeated by Australia in the final match.
India met similar fate when they were beaten in the semi-finals by Australia.
Expecting that India will play the final, large number of tickets of the grand event were reportedly bought by Indians.
