Applications for England's Tests against Sri Lanka and India, their ODI against Sri Lanka and MCC's fixture against Rest of the World are now being taken. The ballot will remain open until Monday 6 January 2014.
Applicants - successful and unsuccessful - will then be informed ahead of the remaining tickets going on general sale on 27 January.
To enter the ballot, you must first be registered with Lord's. If you are not already registered, you can do so here.

Guide to entering the 2014 General Public Ticket Ballot
Please remember that the date on which you apply for the ballot has no bearing on your chances of success. An application received on 16 December has the same chance of securing tickets as one submitted on 5 January.
The ticket website is likely to be busy on the day the ballot opens, and applicants are encouraged to take their time over completing their forms.
