Leicestershire CCC is delighted to announce that the visit of World Champions India to Grace Road on Monday August 29 is now a sell-out.

Ticket sales have gone through the roof since India beat Sri Lanka to lift the World Cup on home soil and so the twenty-over spectacular will be played at a jam-packed Grace Road on the Bank Holiday.

As well as offering tickets on general sale, the Club also combined with Warwickshire CCC to offer a great package whereby supporters could get test match and t20 tickets at the same time and that proved to be a popular offer.

Given the match is India’s only t20 game in preparation for their twenty-over match against England at Old Trafford, the Champions are expected to bring a strong team to Leicester.

With MS Dhoni as captain and players such as former Leicestershire batsman Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh in the team, India are always a massively entertaining side to watch. Given Leicestershire’s long and happy association with the t20 format, the match is sure to be an exciting one.
