If you bought a ticket for an under 16, as it is a Covid test event under official guidelines, under 16s are not allowed to attend.

You are given the option of a full refund - ........or upgrading your child ticket to an adult ticket by paying the difference between a child and adult ticket.

This adult ticket will give your child access to the game.

I have my own opinion, but wondered what others' thought.

Broad playing for his place possibly even in The Ashes. Anderson, Jeffrey Archer, Wood, Olly Stone, Robinson must all be ahead of him in the pecking order. Woakes and Currant rested! Stokes. Mahmoud from Lancashire is also being talked up as an Ashes prospect.

Hussain made a point of saying how smart Conway was to change hands on the bat while at the non strikers end either side of the wicket. These are professional cricketers. You should be learning stuff like that when you are 11.

the likes of Stokes, Woakes and Butler will undoubtedly elevate the side but the top order is in absolute chaos currently regardless of availability and team selection leaving out Leach on a dry surface with temps projected to be 26c on day 4 remains almost laughable even though largely irrelevant as it turned out.
