Norwood's on Fire
My ticket for Headingley last year was £40 - seeing as you can pay that to watch a Premier League football match that lasts for about a quarter of the time, I don't think it's as bad as some people make out.
That's as maybe, but they're all extremely expensive, by Joe Public standards.
It's been pointed-out that watching England play cricket is becoming increasingly an upper-class pastime.
Could have sworn you told me you'd only ever been to T20 games with your family, must be mistaken obviously! Could have sworn you even made a post saying "I really should get to a Test one of these days!" LOL, my badNever been to a Test?! I've been to two - The Oval 1998 and Headingley 2003. And anyway, I've watched plenty on TV which merely backed-up my impression I got on said occasions.
There was one entire section of a crowd at the former which stood and applauded\catcalled... when one female steward walked past. Every time. Even at 13 I could tell the bogan-ness of that. Latter involved the usual hefty amount of throwing rubbish all over everywhere (including onto the field and into the space of other spectators) in the name of having some fun Mexican Waving... yeah.
Even my Grandad enjoyed it when we took him to a T20. Totally against expectations too. Then again, maybe that's what you're really afraid of.Nope. Have thought about doing so every now and then (I obviously wouldn't enjoy the play itself much but it might be a worthwhile experience) but never actually have.
