Nottinghamshire have taken more than £1m in ticket sales for England's two matches against the West Indies at Trent Bridge. With next month's Texaco Trophy one-day international already a sell-out, Notts have sold more than £700,000 worth of tickets for the fifth Cornhill Test match in August. The Test's second day is a sell-out, and the club have only 500 tickets left for the Saturday.
