Pratima Singh, wife of Indian pacer Ishant Sharma, has brutally trolled the fans asking her for match-tickets of the upcoming Indian Premier League. 

The excitement is increasing with every passing day as the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League edges closer. And with the BCCI announcing the schedule for the first two weeks on Tuesday, the fans have already started looking out for the tickets. But if you are one of them then stop asking for the tickets from Pratima Singh. She posted a hilarious picture of her reply to a fan who was asking her for tickets.

Pratima Singh took to Instagram to make her followers aware of the consequences they could face if they ask for IPL tickets, writing:

The BCCI, meanwhile, had already announced the starting date but had delayed the scheduled due to the unclarity over the date of the upcoming general elections. But on Tuesday, the board released the schedule of the first 17 games while the whole schedule is still subject to the announcement of the Lok Sabha election dates.

Once the election date is announce, the BCCI will address any issues with the first two weeks and will also prepare a schedule for the remainder of the season working with the local authorities around the polling dates. This is the first time the IPL is being held entirely in India despite the elections. In 2009, the BCCI had shifted the whole tournament to South Africa. Five years later, the initial part of the tournament was played in UAE before returning to India. However, the BCCI has already announced that the whole tournament will be played at home this year.

Every team will play minimum of 2 home and 2 away matches with DC playing 3 home matches, while RCB will play 3 away matches.
