This year’s FIFA World Cup was won by the Australian national team, making them the clear favourites to take home the gold medal. Although the India Women’s team did not perform very well at the world cup, a medal is still anticipated from them. Two teams that are extremely popular with their respective fan bases are going to compete in this game.
In general, the batting surface at Edgbaston stadium in Birmingham is one of the best in the country.
The bounce on the wicket is consistent, and the outfield moves rather quickly as well. The batters’ job is made much simpler by the reduction in the size of the boundaries.
This venue has only ever played host to a single Women’s Twenty20 International, and that match had few runs scored by both teams. During the first innings, England only scored 126 runs, while the South African team only scored 118 runs. England’s score was significantly lower than South Africa’s. Having said that, this match took place in 2014, and the surface has undoubtedly evolved since then.
In the Hundred Women’s competition that took place in Edgbaston the year before, there were four games played, and the chasing teams won three of those games.
The first inning score was 132 runs on average, with Ovan Incvincibles recording the greatest chase of 133 runs versus Birmingham Phoenix Women. The average score for the first inning was 132 runs.
There have been a total of six Men’s Twenty20 Internationals played at this venue, and all of the matches were won by the team that batted first. The fact that the first innings score in men’s T20 Internationals has been 170 runs on average indicates that the batting track is quite favourable. At this venue, England has posted the highest overall score (221-5), while South Africa has posted the lowest score (90-5).
Aaron Finch has the record for the greatest individual score in a Twenty20 International, which he achieved here against England by scoring 84 runs in 41 balls.
At this venue, Warwickshire scored 242/2 in the domestic Twenty20 competition, and Brendon McCullum had an incredible game, scoring 158 runs in 68 balls for Warwickshire.
