£90 for an Edrich Upper ticket for the opening day at Lords.
This seems a bit steep to me.
Do I horse in now or pick something up cheaper on the day ?

There'll be no singing at Lords don't ya know!!

Personally I'd save buying early and buy off the touts on the day...expect to save a good few pounds at best or worst case pay face value.....

Circumstances meant I couldn't do the Lords test but in order to fulfil my promise of taking three 10-year-old cricket fans to see their first test match I pitched up on Thursday at the Oval.

£145 for tickets - no £5 juvenile seats at Surrey CC - throw in the cost of feeding and watering them, a programme each and train fares up to town and I think I know why there have been so many empty seats at matches this summer.

i know its a bit late now to help you, but iv paid £40 for friday and £30 for saturday for the grandstand restricted view, the view is ok in my experience ,generally after lunch there are plenty of empty seats to move to. its something to bear in mind next time you want to go
