Birmingham: Even though many football games have been called off keeping in mind the riots that have hit England, currently as things stand the 3rd Test will be played as per schedule at the Edgbaston Ground in Birmingham starting Wednesday. Though the pitch there is one that's hard to read at the moment, especially if you consider its controversial history.
Edgbaston has always been known to assist fast bowlers but in the last 12 months the stadium has seen a facelift which in turn has affected the playing conditions.
Just about two months ago, Warwickshire were docked 8 points for preparing a poor pitch for their county championship win over Worcestershire. Though the authorities insist that that was an aberration.
