Why the ticket price change is needed?
The cause behind the price change is mainly for the below capacity crowd for the first match at Eden Gardens. KKR did not include city's famous Sourav Ganguly (Dada) in the team this year. This may affect the crowd at Eden.
Although there is a revenue loss for Knight Riders, the management is desperate to bring capacity crowd inside the stadium.
