Fortress Edgbaston – England’s favourite ground
Since 1902 when Edgbaston hosted its first Test Match, England have recorded an impressive record which includes 26 wins, 15 draws and only 8 losses – it’s simply England’s favourite ground! England has now only lost just once since 2002 in Test Match cricket after their fine victory over Pakistan last summer. The venue is renowned for producing an electric atmosphere and often piles the pressure on the opposition. Joe Root, new England skipper, and the rest of the England squad, will be looking to kick-off their three match Test series against the Windies in style at Edgbaston and will be hoping for your support – let’s get the stadium rocking again.
