All general sale public area tickets for the ICC Champions Trophy 2004 match between India and Pakistan at Edgbaston on 19 September have sold out in one day.

On-line tickets were snapped up within 30 minutes of going on sale with the rest of the tickets going to postal applicants.

ICC Chief Executive Malcolm Speed expressed his delight at the early interest shown in the tournament.

‘As India plays an historic series in Pakistan it is good to see that there is great enthusiasm for this traditional rivalry in England as well,’ said Mr Speed.

‘The ICC Champions Trophy is the only occasion outside the ICC Cricket World Cup when all of the world’s top cricket sides are brought together in one competition and this is one of many exciting matches that will take place in the 16-day event.’

This will be the first time the prestigious tournament has been held in England. Tickets for the other 14 matches are available through the three host venues as follows:
