BIRMINGHAM PHOENIX TO WIN THE MATCH
Edgbaston Cricket Ground, also known as the County Ground or Edgbaston Stadium, is a cricket ground in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham, England. It is home to Warwickshire County Cricket Club and its T20 team Birmingham Bears. Edgbaston has also been the venue for Test matches, One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals. Edgbaston has hosted the T20 Finals Day more than any other cricket ground. Edgbaston is the main home ground for the Birmingham Phoenix men’s team in The Hundred competition from 2021.
Edgbaston was the first English ground outside Lord’s to host a major international one-day tournament final when it hosted the ICC Champions Trophy final in 2013. With permanent seating for approximately 25,000 spectators, it is the fourth-largest cricketing venue in England, after Lord’s, Old Trafford and The Oval.
Pitch & Condition
Edgbaston usually provides a good face, leading to high marks. Of the seven T20I matches played at this venue, six were won by the first team, while the remaining matches were abandoned. In the last game, Phoenix won by 53 points after a total of 176 points. So, ideally, the team that wins the toss must choose to bat first.
So far in the 2022 Men’s Hundreds, both the Birmingham Phoenix and Trent Rockets have opted to go first when they won. We expect that to continue in this game.
