Protests took place at UCB outlets in Sylhet as fans gathered to buy their BPL tickets.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had already announced via a media release that BPL tickets will go on sale at Sylhet from October 31. Tickets will be available in three UCB Branches at Sylhet suburb.
However rumour spread that BPL tickets will be on sale today on 30th December after a local print and online portal mistakenly posted the wrong dates.
Crowds gathered inside the UCB branches as people demanded for their tickets. Verbal altercation took place as the crowd justified their presence. Bank officials tried to communicate to the protesting fans that tickets have not been provided for sale.
The main gates of the banks were enclosed for a while as crowd got animated. People had come from across town and were understandbly iritated by the unavailability of the tickets.
There was police presence at the branches however there was no news of physical violence taking place.
