The Borough of Eastleigh is set to host the potentially series-defining fourth Test Match as England host India at the Ageas Bowl starting on Thursday 30 August 2018.
The Ageas Bowl, situated at West End in the heart of the borough, is set to welcome tens of thousands of cricket fans for the fourth test in the five match Investec Series with England leading 2-1.
Council Leader, Councillor Keith House, says: ”It’s great to welcome the players, officials, media and of course the fans to the borough to enjoy the prestigious and world class cricket venue that is the Ageas Bowl. He added, “I’m delighted that our borough will be the focus of the cricketing world for these five days and I’m sure that local cricket fans together with the many thousands travelling from further afield will have a great time at the Ageas Bowl experience. It will also provide a major boost to the local economy and I hope that everyone will enjoy the experience and facilities offered by our borough.”
