Edgbaston Cricket ground, Birmingham
Edgbaston, in Birmingham, is famed for having the most enthusiastic crowd in the UK and during an Ashes Test, they’ll be at their most vociferous.
Edgbaston Cricket Ground was first established in 1882 and has a seating capacity of 21,000. It was at Edgbaston that Brian Lara scored his world record first-class score of 501 not out and it was also at Edgbaston that Australia famously tied the 1999 World Cup semi final with South Africa, going through to the final on wickets lost.
Most famously, from England fans’ perspective, it was here in Birmigham where Michael Kasprowicz was caught by Geraint Jones in 2005 with Australia only one shot away from winning the second Ashes Test, giving England a famous victory and propelling them towards a series victory. Tickets for that day’s play should have been priceless in hindsight.
