Speaking to Gulf News, Maqbul Dudhia, General Manager Sports Business of Dubai Sports City, said: “The fact two of the finest teams Pakistan and South Africa are playing on a Friday evening is a huge attraction and spectators who can come for the match will have a great time. Hence the demand for tickets has been very high.”
