I hope they will remain well-disciplined and supporting in the T20I as well.”

Subhan also said that they were aware of the problems faced by the masses during the first T20I. “I know the masses have to suffer a lot while reaching the spot to witness their heroes live in action. But we are trying to resolve those problems and it is hoped that they will be resolved gradually.” About stolen tickets issue, Subhan said: “The PCB didn’t register a case against stolen tickets. The policemen themselves registered the case and they have been investigating the matter their own.”
