Apparently players will return in batches, depending on when they get tickets. All tickets for the final have been sold out and despite India’s exit from the final, Indian fans will make up for 90% of the spectators. 


Many were expected to sell off their tickets after India’s loss to NZ but ICC’s ticketing website showed that the resale traffic is very low.
