Edgbaston Birmingham T20 records
Birmingham’s Edgbaston stadium is generally a brilliant track to bat on. There is an even bounce on the wicket, and the outfield is pretty quick as well. The smaller boundaries make the job even easier for the batters.
This ground has just hosted a single Women’s T20I so far, and it was a low-scoring encounter. England managed to score just 126 runs in the first innings, and the South African side could just manage to score 118 runs. Although, this match was played in 2014, and the surface has certainly changed.
Edgbaston hosted four matches of the Hundred Women’s competition last year, where three games were won by the chasing teams. The average 1st innings score was 132 runs, and Ovan Incvincibles recorded the highest chase of 133 runs against Birmingham Phoenix Women.
