Amidst the unrest around the UK, the England cricket side are just one game away from becoming the world’s best Test team. Following the Three Lions’ dominant victory in Nottingham the action now moves to Edgbaston where they have won 23 of their 45 matches, drawing on 14 occasions.
England have been the far superior side across the opening two Tests and in the process have limited India to fewer than 300 runs in every innings on tour. Further encouragement for those buying England’s win index in Birmingham is their excellent record against India at the ground. The Three Lions have beaten India in four of their five Tests here, although the last was in 1996. Sachin Tendulkar remains stranded on 99 Test centuries, but anyone interested in his runs spread tomorrow may like to know that he scored a ton on his last visit to the ground.
Another player who enjoys playing in Birmingham is Kevin Pietersen, who averages 60.57 runs at Edgbaston.
