Edgbaston Cricket Ground, the home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club, has received a record demand for tickets for next summer’s One-day International between England and Pakistan.

Pakistan will once again travel to England in the summer of 2021 to take part in a series of three 50-over games and as many Twenty20 Internationals.

The last ODI of the three-match series will take place at the iconic Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham in what is a day/night fixture, currently scheduled for July 13, 2021.

“Edgbaston has received record demand for the England v Pakistan ODI via the Ticket Ballot, with over 60,000 tickets already requested,” Warwickshire County Cricket Club said in a statement.

“Following an unprecedented year of behind-closed-doors cricket, the Club has received record ballot entries for next year’s ODI, more than any other major match fixture including the 2019 Ashes, with a 67% increase in applicants compared to the previous best after the same number of days,” the statement further added.

As many as 60 percent of the tickets have been sold out for the fixture.

“Meanwhile, over 60% of tickets have already been sold for this match in the opening priority windows to Warwickshire Members and ticket buyers who accepted credit from our cancelled 2020 Major Matches,” the statement further said.

The ballot is set to be closed on Friday, 11th December at 5 PM, and the lucky winners will be contacted for further details on how they can proceed with buying the ticket.

For the uninitiated, Pakistan Cricket Team traveled to England in the 2020 summer where they lost the three-match Test series 1-0 before drawing the T20I rubber 1-1.
