International Cricket in Bristol with England v West Indies at The Brightside Ground on Sunday 24 September 2017

Posted on: 30 Aug 2017

Cricket fans are in for a real treat with what is guaranteed to be an unforgettable match when England play against the West Indies at The Brightside Ground in Bristol on Sunday 24 September 2017.


The apex of a truly phenomenal summer of cricket, the two sides will pit against each other for Royal London One-Day International fixture. And a further incentive to lure in the sport's aficionados is the announcement that top West Indies player, Chris Gayle, will be one of the members of the team. 


Unquestionably one of the biggest stars in the name of contemporary cricket, Gayle last played an ODI in March 2015 and has garnered a reputation as one of cricket's most promising and formidable players and is sure to prove a big draw. Also on the West Indies side, the indomitable spirit and skillful technique of Marlon Samuels in the squad ensures this will be a clash of the England and West Indies cricketing titans in every respect.

The epic confrontation between two of the world's finest team exponents of the sport is expected to be one of the most thrilling matches of the season. And, with many of the stands already sold out and a capacity crowd at The Brightside Ground - home to Gloucestershire Cricket - highly likely, cricket enthusiasts are being encouraged to snap up tickets as soon as possible. 


Whether you keep your eye out for a googly or a dibbly dobbly (yep, that's genuine cricketing terminology), this is one potentially monumental and unforgettable cricket match any genuine fan of the sport won't want to miss. 


Ticket prices range from £15 to £65 for this behemoth of clashing cricketing legends, with a range of hospitality packages also available. You can call the ticket office on 0117 910 8010 or get them online here.
