Edgbaston

first_imgEdgbaston was established in 1882 and is the home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club and just like the 1979, 1983 and 1999 editions, Edgbaston will play host to an ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final in the 2019 edition as well. Edgbaston will host a total of five games including a high-profile meeting of England and India.The last ICC Cricket World Cup semi-final hosted by the venue was at the 1999 edition, which was between Australia and South Africa. Arguably the greatest ever ODI, it was ‘the’ match in which Allan Donald and Lance Klusener, being the men at the crease, had a mix-up while taking a run anf that too when the scores were level. The result was that Australia progressed to the World Cup final and South Africa were braded the ‘chokers’.Opened:1882Capacity: 21,000Ends: City End, Pavilion EndLocation: Birmingham, EnglandICC Cricket World Cup 2019 matches -15:00 IST: NZ vs RSA, Match 2515:00 IST: NZ vs PAK, Match 3315:00 IST: Eng vs IND, Match 3815:00 IST: BAN vs IND, Match 4015:00 IST: TBC vs TBC, 2nd Semi-Final (2 v 3)STATS – ODITotal matches: 58Matches won batting first: 24Matches won bowling first: 27Average 1st Inns scores: 227Average 2nd Inns scores: 179Highest total recorded: 408/9 (50 Ov) by Eng vs NZLowest total recorded: 70/10 (25.2 Ov) by AUS vs EngHighest score chased: 280/4 (53.3 Ov) by AUS vs EngLowest score defended: 129/7 (20 Ov) by IND vs Englast_img read more
