Report: Edgbaston’s pitch is ideal for bowlers. Pacers, in particular, can benefit more from this pitch because to its speed and bounce. They would look to swing the ball and cause difficulties for hitters, while batters should plan a counter-swing. After winning the toss, teams prefer to bat, with the average first-inning total being 214 runs.
