The Borough of Eastleigh is set to host its second Test Match as England look to square the series against India at the Ageas Bowl starting on Sunday 27 July 2014.

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 third test in the five match Investec Series with India leading 1-0.

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.”

    It’s a pity that the players, officials, media and fans can’t use the new hotel, because the original contractor went into administration and the hotel isn’t finished yet…

    Also, watch out for idiots on Charles Watts Way during the Test Match. I’ve seen them leave the motorway, go straight to the outside lane, then turn left from the outside lane at the first roundabout, cutting up other vehicles without second thought for road safety or the Highway code. This happened on several occasions when I was driving the van and I guarantee it will happen again this time.

    These International Cricket games seem to import poor driving standards from other parts of the country….
