Less than 3,000 tickets remain for the first day of the third npower Test at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

England will clinch the series with a win or a draw against New Zealand and with sell-outs confirmed for Friday and Saturday and limited tickets available for Sunday’s play, supporters are being urged to buy in advance for the opening exchanges.

“The level of interest in this game has surpassed our expectations and we urge supporters who wish to attend on Thursday to buy their tickets in advance,” said Notts Marketing Manager Claire Harrison.

“The series is finely poised and there has been a lot of interest from cricket fans wanting to sit in the new stand and enjoy a major match with everything to play for.”

Less than 1,500 tickets remain for the alcohol-free npower Fox Road Family Stand for Sunday.

Notts bowlers Stuart Broad and Ryan Sidebottom have been named in an unchanged England line-up.

Adult tickets costing £35-£50 and under 16’s tickets costing £16 are available now for the first and fourth days of the third npower Test from trentbridge.co.uk and from the ticket office by calling 0870 1688888.
