Its England vs Pakistan in just over two month’s as Test Match cricket returns to England’s coliseum. England have been victorious 25 times at Edgbaston in Test cricket and have only lost once in the last 14 years – no doubt one of England’s most successful grounds!
Lords will always be the Home of Cricket whilst Edgbaston has firmly established itself as the Home of Atmosphere! If you’re thinking this is a bold statement, then simply check out this video from last year’s Ashes Test Match!
It was great for us, and you felt like ‘I wouldn’t want to be in the opposition out there’ it was such a noisy and intense environment, it was like the Birmingham Coliseum.Ian Bell, Captain of Warwickshire CCC
Edgbaston scored 9.5 out of 10 for atmosphere during Day 3 of the Investec Ashes Test Match last summer and has been officially recognised as the best cricket venue for atmosphere in 2015. Commenting after the game, Australian Batsman David Warner admitted that the electric atmosphere piled the pressure on the Aussies as England ran out comfortable winners against their biggest rivals.
The Eric Hollies Stand, our party stand, is recognised worldwide for its fancy dress and carnival atmosphere. The Barmy Army will once again be seated in this area who will look to recreate last summer’s unforgettable atmosphere. We will also have the Stani Army present who will cheer on their national side, they will be hoping for a first Pakistan win at Edgbaston.
It’s not just the atmosphere, we’ve got world superstars in Alastair Cook, Joe Root, James Anderson, Misbah-ul-Haq, Younus Khan and Yasir Shah going up against each other.
