The deputy chief executive at Trent Bridge, Lisa Pursehouse responded to the demand and said: "We knew there would be a big response but to be honest it has exceeded expectations. We deliberately gave people the opportunity to book in advance and get a discount and many are keen to take advantage of that.
"Clearly people want to be part of a special occasion and with another 12 days to go, we expect numbers to build steadily. The ticket office is going to be open over the weekend during our Championship match with Hampshire and it will be interesting to see what the figures are like on Monday morning."
Tickets for non-members range from £6 to £28 and can be purchased from the Trent Bridge ticket office by calling 0870 168 8888 or by logging onto www.nottsccc.co.uk. The closing date for advanced bookings is 1pm on Saturday July 22.
