Edgbaston Cricket Ground

Edgbaston Cricket ground is located in a green southern suburb of Birmingham. This ground was established in 1882. It was the youngest among six regular venues for test cricket, until the inauguration of Chester-Le-Street in May 2003. It had hosted only four Test matches in its first twenty seven years. However after renovation in 1957 Edgbaston was considered to be the most high-tech ground of England. It has the Thwaite Memorial Scoreboard which was built in the year 1950. It is among the most prominent features of the ground. The total seating capacity of the ground is 21,000. It had its floodlights installed in early 2011 to host day-night matches. The two major ends are City End and Pavilion End. It is the second largest ground of the United Kingdom following The Lords. This stadium has hosted several T20 matches. This is the ground where West Indies’s left handed Batsman Brian Lara made the world-record of 501* against Durham in the year 1994. In 1999, possibly the greatest One Day International in  cricket history saw South Africa and Australia tie their semi-final in the World Cup. In 2005, English team won the 2nd Test of Ashes trophy by 2 runs and leveled the series.
