Edgbaston Cricket Ground
With a capacity of 25,000 it is the second-largest cricket ground in the United Kingdom, just behind the famous Lords Cricket Ground. It hosted its first ever Test Match in 1902 and has regularly hosted international cricket ever since.
Along with world class international cricket Edgbaston has seen the very best county cricket on offer. In 1994 West Indies legend scored the highest ever first class score as he hit an astonishing innings of 501 against Durham.
Who could ever forget England’s epic clash with Australia in the 2005 Ashes series? The match went right down to the wire as Michael Vaughan’s England side clung on for a two-run victory, the closest margin in Ashes history. But it will be best remembered for Andrew Flintoff’s show of sportsmanship at the climax of the game as he consoled Australian batsman Brett Lee.
More records fell in 2015 during the extraordinary One Day International series between England and New Zealand. In the opening match of the series the hosts hit a remarkable 408 runs in their innings before going onto register their highest ever winning margin of 210 runs.
One thing is for certain games at Edgbaston are rarely dull affairs.
