Edgbaston Stadium T20 records: On Saturday, Birmingham will host a T20I for the first time in as long as four years.
Birmingham will host the second Twenty20 International of the current India tour of England tomorrow. This week’s historic England-India Test match was played at Edgbaston; the action will return there next week but in an entirely new style.
India will be seeking to win this game to officially seal a T20I series triumph and exact some retribution after missing a great opportunity to claim a rare Test series victory at this location on Tuesday.
On the other side, England will need to improve on their performance from yesterday’s first T20I not just because the series is on the line but also because the opposition will be strengthened by the return of players who can play in several formats.
Edgbaston Stadium T20 records:
Only five T20Is have been played in Edgbaston thus far, therefore there aren’t many records to brag about. Jos Buttler (103), Eoin Morgan (91), Alex Hales (89), Umar Akmal (89), and Aaron Finch have the most T20I runs scored at this location (84).
The players involved in tomorrow’s game have already played the shortest format here: Virat Kohli (66), Jason Roy (52) and Ravindra Jadeja (7). Readers should be aware that only former captain Kohli and all-rounder Jadeja have participated in a 2014 Birmingham T20 International.
The highest wicket-taker in the Edgbaston T20Is are Steve O’Keefe (3), Saeed Ajmal (4), Dirk Nannes (5), Mohammed Amir (6), and Saeed Ajmal (4). (3). Chris Jordan (3), Mitchell Swepson (2), Moeen Ali (2), and Jadeja (1) have all taken wickets in Birmingham T20Is among members of the current teams.
