Lancashire Chief Executive Jim Cumbes has revealed his delight at the success of the second npower Test match between England and Bangladesh at Old Trafford.
England roared to a comprehensive victory inside three days as they comfortably saw off Bangladesh during Old Trafford's first Test match since the 2008 victory against New Zealand.
The attendance was the highest outside London for a Test match between the two nations.
Jim Cumbes said: "We are really pleased with the attendance and buoyant atmosphere that was generated over the three days. It just goes to show that the people of the North West have an appetite for Test match cricket and they see Old Trafford as an international venue of high acclaim.
"With The Point due to officially open within the next fortnight, and the wider development of Old Trafford planned, these are really exciting times for international cricket in North West England."
International cricket will make a quick return to Lancashire later in the month when Australia visit Old Trafford for the NatWest ODI on Sunday 27 June. A few tickets for this game are still available - click here for more information
