    Crowds

    How many people go to a First class game in your country? How many go to a Test match or ODI?

    First Class - 250? (Sometimes get more watching me at college)
    Limited Overs Domestic - 4,500
    Test Match and ODI - 10,000?

    Think its similar in SA as well, but less for tests and more for ODI's

    In Melbourne only a few handful go to see a Pura Cup FC match. If Victoria is playing with Shane Warne, a few thousand go.

    In an ODI match of the VB Series, generally in January (especially if Australia is playing against a team like Pakistan or India) its generally about 72,000 + people in the MCG.

    living in italy the biggest crowd i played 2 was 100 people (against MCC)... However i've been 2 london with my club and we watched the tewnty 20 clash between Surrey and middlesex... Looked like a sell out... at least 30'000 people is it possible?

    Hmm I would say Perth FC very small maybe a couple of hundred, List A (ODD) about 5000. Test match maybe 15,000 on average a day. ODI sells out every year, so about 18 or 19,000.

    Thats some pretty rough figures though, haha.

    The Surrey-Middlesex game was the first domestic sell-out (at the Oval) since 1948, IIRC - was around 25,000.

    Here in Auckland:
    FC 4 day - 50 if you're lucky
    FC 1 day - 1000-2000
    Test - 5,000-10,000
    ODI - 20,000+ (apparently the 35,000 seats for tomorrow are pretty much sold out)

    I thought the WACA did a touch over 25,000.

    Old Trafford does about 18,000, Headingly about the same, so is Trent Bridge, Lords about 28,000 Oval about 22,000, Edgbaston about 20,000. All ground are solid for ODi's and pretty full for tests
