In all probability the Bollywood star would be here. Khan is committed to be present for all his home matches in Kolkata.'' His presence in Mohali will be the only away from home match that Khan would be witnessing and cheering his team.

We are making elaborate arrangements. ''The last two matches played here have been very good in terms of crowd and performance. Though it was a day match between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils on April 27, attendance was 85 per cent,'' said former president of Board of Control for Cricket in India.

''The strategy to offer one ticket free after purchase of two has worked very well. Now special offer is being given. For the May 3 match, one will get one ticket free after purchase of one for the denomination of Rs 750, Rs 2000 and Rs 3500.

For the remaining matches, the prices of tickets have been reduced to Rs 400 (for Rs 750), Rs 1000 (for Rs 2000) and Rs 1500 (for Rs 3500),'' disclosed Mr Bindra.
