    English Fans: Are you attending any Test matches this summer?

    So I was just wondering who was attending which Tests, if any, and when etc etc?

    I will be at Headingley on day 3 of England V Saffies, anyone else going then?

    Do share, anyway. I know dav normally does a couple, and CDM and andmark tend to do the OT Tests. Opted out of that this year myself, on the basis that

    a - can't afford two, really want to watch us play the Saffies (it's been six years since they were here, far too long!!!)
    b - I think that is play-off final weekend. Need that free.

    Anyway, do share.

    Only been 5 TBH, but that in itself is too long anyway, should be 4.

    Anyway, doubt I'll be going to any of the games, can't plan ahead enough @ the current time, and these days tickets have to be booked long in advance.

    Yeah, and I was thinking in my head "2003" so I must have thought it was 09......how odd

    Yeah, tickets are close to selling out I believe. Tis why I got my arse in gear yesterday and boxed it all off.

    Nothing atm, which is a shame given I've practically got the entire summer at home. The highlight for me looks like Lancashire v Bangladesh A at Alderley Edge, which I'm not missing for anything. Last time I went there though, to watch my little brother play a few seasons back, they charged me some ridiculous amount for an orange juice and then the bloke in front of me in the queue asked if he pay in Euros... how pretentious.

    Would love to, but can't guarantee my availability for any of them, so probably won't be able to. Haven't been to a day of Test cricket since September 12th, 2005. Nothing memorable happened on that day, as I recall.....

    Sealing of victory in a close-fought series (after 20 years since the last home victory) > the completion of a whitewash TBH.

    Going to Edgbaston v SA, not quite sure what day. Might try a fifth day jaunt somewhere not too far away as well if the situation arises.
