Venue Details

Edgbaston, Birmingham has a lively surface where fast bowlers have done well but the ball comes to the bat nicely allowing batsmen to play their strokes. The outfield is fast, and this helps the batsmen. Spinners have to rely on their skills as there isn’t much on the surface for them.

Toss: To Bowl

This is a good venue to chase scores and the side batting second always had an advantage in this format of the game. The wicket remains the same throughout the game. Hence, the side winning the toss in this game shall have no hesitation in opting to bowl first.

Birmingham Phoenix has a mountain to climb here. Their batsmen haven’t looked at their best so far and there would be pressure on them to deliver in this game. Trent Rockets have played well in all three games. Their batsmen are in incredible form, and this would put them slightly ahead of the Birmingham Phoenix.
