TNCA asked to consider refund

The Madras High Court has asked the TNCA to consider a refund, in whole or in part, to those who bought tickets for the November 22 ODI between India and South Africa.
Does it strike you that the TNCA's response to the affidavit is not only naive, but opens up interesting possibilities for a counter?
In a counter affidavit in response to the petition, the association had told the court that it was made clear to the public that claims for refund would not be entertained for international cricket matches conducted by it.
Except for a handful of people, the general public, to whom about 40,000 tickets had been sold for the match, had not made any claim, the affidavit had pointed out.

The TNCA suggests that it is clear there will be no refund. Fair enough. But in selling the tickets, the TNCA (in fact, any association) makes a promise to provide a certain form of entertainment; a promise it defaulted on.
