Cricket fans wanting tickets to the 2015 Cricket World Cup's opening match in Christchurch may have already missed out.

Tickets went on sale at 2pm today, exactly a year out from the New Zealand v Sri Lanka opening match at Hagley Park.

On the Cricket World Cup website, General Admission and Family Zone tickets were labelled "allocation exhausted". 

Category A tickets had "limited availability", but could not be obtained online. 

One of the most coveted matches of the tournament, India v Pakistan in Adelaide, also sold out within an hour of tickets going on sale.

It had been expected that major pool games would sell out quickly.

Fans have been asked to join a waiting list in case tickets became available at a later time.

For New Zealand games, children's tickets were priced from $5 for pool matches with adult tickets ranging from $20 to $195.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is being jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand and will feature 49 matches in 44 days across 14 host cities.

The New Zealand host cities are Auckland, Hamilton, Napier, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin. 

Each will host three pool games - as will each of the seven Australian host cities - and every visiting team will play at least two pool matches in New Zealand.
