It is our moral duty to refund amounts of the tickets for the last two days where no game is being played at all," CAB secretary Avishek Dalmiya said.

The rule that there is no refund if a ball has been bowled in the match would not be applicable for this match for the specific days where no game took place.

Tickets were sold daily and ranged between Rs 50, Rs 100 and Rs 150.

"We would also like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to BCCI and its president Sourav Ganguly for taking this initiative to bring back the interest of the people to Test cricket. After the end of the game, one can easily vouch that cricket was the real winner," the CAB stated.
