    Port of Spain: Tickets have been sold out for the remaining matches of the Celkon Mobile Cup tri-nation ODI series at Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad, officials of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have disclosed.

    WICB officials say no tickets are left for any of the games and that ticket offices were closed before mid-day on Tuesday. A number of persons who turned up to purchase tickets were forced to turn back empty-handed.

    The West Indies, who defeated Sri Lanka and India on the Jamaica leg of the tournament, will take on India on Friday in the presence of a 20,000 capacity crowd. Similar crowds are expected for the West Indies' fourth and final preliminary game against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

    Officials also say that tickets for next Thursday's final have also been sold out.

    The West Indies currently lead the standings with nine points from two wins, while Sri Lanka got their first points on Tuesday with an emphatic win against world champions India.
