    Never been to Test Match

    Can somebody help me please? I am not a big cricket fan but enjoy to watch on tv occasionally. I am going to be in Cardiff from about 5.00 p.m on the first day of the Test. I have looked at tickets and prices seem to be from around 75 +. Will it be possible to go in cheaper after a certain time. o not know if I This sound a bit cheapskate but I could watch all day and it would be a lot of money if I could'nt.
    Thanks

    No. In a word.

    In cricket, a day's play is a day's play and there is no breakdown. You buy a ticket for the full day's play or not at all.

    If there's truly still tickets remaining for the first day's play I'm astounded.

    1st Test - Day 1 tickets at SWALEC Stadium in Cardiff on 08/07/2009

    Do'nt know how these compare to the facevalue prices as I have'nt been able to access the ECB website.

    They're pretty good value, I'd probably pay double that price to be at the first day of the Ashes. Unfortunately, with the cost of flights and accommodation, I'd end up going way beyond that.

    Go for it though, if there's no anti-tout system in place (and there very, very rarely is, for all the warnings they give). We'll see you on TV

    Not true for all grounds. At Lords at least you can pay half price to get in after the tea break. There is only a limited number of seats available though (they sell off all the no shows at that point) and you have to queue, probably for at least half an hour before tea in order to have a chance to get one and for an Ashes match I imagine even longer.
