YORKSHIRE are reporting “unprecedented demand” for tickets to the Headingley Test after England’s thrilling victory over New Zealand at Lord’s.

The club have sold around 1,500 tickets since the dramatic 124-run win at headquarters on Monday.

Less than 1,000 tickets remain for the Saturday of the Test, while under 2,500 are available for Friday’s opening day.

Mark Arthur, the Yorkshire chief executive, said: “Over the past 24 hours we have had unprecedented demand for tickets.

“We are very excited for what should be a superb finale to the series.

“England’s performance at Lord’s was absolutely brilliant.

“There were some great individual performances with Ben Stokes and captain Alastair Cook coming to the fore.

“Also, our local boy, Joe Root, carried on with his great form with the bat and the victory sets it up nicely going into the Headingley Test.

“We are already ahead of where we were during the previous two Tests at Headingley, which is great news and real progress for the venue.”

Tickets for the Test start at £35 adults and £10 juniors, with all day four tickets priced £15 adults and £5 juniors.
