ICC to release additional 200 tickets for Cricket World Cup final

The ICC have announced that they will release an extra 200 tickets for Sunday's World Cup final via their ticketing website.
Cricket's governing body are also confident that the final will take place in front of a packed out 30,000 capacity crowd despite exorbitantly priced tickets being made available on tout websites.
Tournament organisers are asking for unwanted tickets to be returned via the official resale platform but plenty of fans are trying to make a large profit.
Organisers will be looking to avoid a repeat of England's semi-final win over Australia, where there were a number of empty seats on view at Edgbaston.
According to The Times, more than 85 per cent of tickets have been sold to UK residents, with 45 per cent of those purchased by England supporters  and the other 41 per cent nabbed by India fans.
Fears over empty seats have grown after India's semi-final exit to New Zealand earlier this week.
While there will be an extra 200 tickets made available by the ICC, fans also face the prospect of forking out thousands of pounds if they want to secure a spot at Lord's.
Some tout websites are listing tickets for £16,584, while showing their original face value as £295.
The ticketing website StubHub has two seats going for £33,168 in the Compton Stand upper. 
Supporters have until midday on Saturday to give their tickets back to organisers if they do not plan on attending the match and few are likely to splash out the exorbitant sums quoted online.
