    I'm going to try and get myself to the 3rd test vs South Africa at Edgbaston.

    Might take my son to see his first international cricket. (He's been to domestic games before).

    Even with the members discount, still seemed rather costy. Will probably try and get into the 5th day at Edgbaston free with any luck.

    Yes I'm hoping to make my way to the Old Trafford Test against New Zealand, shame there's no Test there against SA but never mind. Not even an ODI against SA either!

    No, I'm going to an ODI because my boyfriend doesn't like going to one day of a test match because you don't see the whole game. (He's not a cricket fan... getting him to a match at all is enough of a problem!)

    I'm also seeing NZ rather than SA because it's a lot cheaper.

    Know the feeling.

    Despair of ever persuading the fiancee to attend a game of cricket that I'm not actually playing in. Dad is the only person that I know who has ever shown genuine willingness to attend games of cricket.

    Can't imagine anything worse than taking a girlfriend/sister/mother to the cricket, if they had no interest in it at all.

    Think I'd prefer absolutely no interest to trying to take an interest and asking stupid inane questions all day when I'm watching the Test.

    Out of interest, where are the tests this English summer? I understand there are some new venues for next year's Ashes series as well. Is that the case?

    there is a veeeeeeeeeeeeeery slight possibility of my being able to come for a match, 1st test vs. SA probably. Actually I'm mainly interested in getting to play cricket somewhere. Are you guys planning a meetup sometime?

    what are ticket prices like, btw?
