Edgbaston Test match refund policy: The Edgbaston Cricket ground ticket holders are subject to their ticket refund under certain conditions.
The second day of the ongoing rescheduled ‘fifth’ Test match between India and England at Edgbaston in Birmingham, commenced with Ravindra Jadeja going on to smash his third Test century, after Rishabh Pant had everyone stand up and applaud the previous day for his magnificent 146 off mere 111 deliveries.
If the aforementioned two innings wasn’t box office entertainment stuff already, the Edgbaston crowd witnessed team India’s skipper cum fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah break a world record, surprisingly with the bat in hand.
Smashing as many as 35 runs (including six extras) off the 84th Over bowled by pacer Stuart Broad, Bumrah broke the record of scoring the maximum runs by a batter in an Over during a Test match. The jaw-dropping, unbeaten innings of 31* off 16 deliveries, helped India surpass the 400-run mark, to post 416/10 in their first innings.

However, since then, with rain playing spoilsport, the players were not only forced to take an early lunch, but also an early tea break, with England having played only 15.1 Overs (at the time of writing) while posting 60/3.
