Description

Edgbaston Cricket Ground (also known as Edgbaston Stadium) is a cricket ground in the Edgbaston area of Birmingham, England. It is home to Warwickshire County Cricket Club, and is also used for Test matches and One Day Internationals. Edgbaston is considered to be one of England's leading cricket grounds. Wisden's guide to cricket grounds in 1992 commented that "Lord's is really its only superior in the United Kingdom"[9] with The Daily Telegraph agreeing in 2009 that "Taken all in all, it is now the best ground outside Lord's."
