The legendary home of Warwickshire will stage five fixtures, including a semi-final and England v India.
Having been established in 1882, it’s fair to say that Edgbaston – home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club – has been the venue for some historic moments, including Brian Lara’s knock of 501*, the highest score by a batsman in first-class cricket.
It has been a venue at four previous ICC Cricket World Cups, and was a semi-final location in the 1979, 1983 and 1999 editions. It will host five games at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, including one semi-final and the high-profile meeting of England and India.
Cricket fans will remember Edgbaston’s 1999 World Cup semi-final between Australia and South Africa as arguably the greatest ever ODI. Allan Donald and Lance Klusener were the men at the crease that day, with a mix-up in the middle when the scores were level meaning Australia progressed to the World Cup final.
New Zealand v South Africa – Wednesday 19 June
New Zealand v Pakistan – Wednesday 26 June
England v India – Sunday 30 June
Bangladesh v India – Tuesday 2 July
Semi-final (2 v 3) – Thursday 11 July
