England vs. Pakistan T20I attendance record for the women's match is broken at Headingley

The attendance record for a women's match at Headingley was broken with the sale of almost 10,000 tickets for England's Twenty20 International versus Pakistan. England's three-match ODI series against the tourists begins on Thursday, May 23.

The T20I between England and Pakistan on Sunday at Headingley smashed attendance records for women's cricket.

The most tickets ever sold at the stadium were more than 10,000 for the game.

Stephen Vaughan, Yorkshire's chief executive said: "The crowd and the atmosphere around the stadium was awesome. You could feel it walking around the ground. It was a great crowd, with people from all communities, families and children, and lots of smiling faces. I hope the girls watching from the stands on Sunday will be inspired to go on to pick up a bat and ball if they haven't already and go on to play cricket, either recreationally or at a higher level potentially enjoying rewarding careers in the sport," Vaughan added. We congratulate England's women on yesterday's strong performance and look forward to giving the men's side a warm welcome back to Yorkshire on Wednesday."
