Edgbaston Cricket Ground: the scoreboard
Edgbaston Cricket Ground: the scoreboard
There has been so much redevelopment at Edgbaston that the old scoreboard (were I given to clichés I should call it "iconic") is probably the only part traditionalists now recognise. On the first day of the County Championship match against Nottinghamshire Ian Westwood had become the first of three Warwickshire centurions. He was eventually out for 171, while his captain, Jim Troughton, made 151 and Ricky Clarke 126 of a daunting 574 for 7 declared compiled over the first day and a half. Daunted, Notts collapsed twice and lost by an innings and 114, but not before Alex Hales (106 not out) had become the game's fourth century-maker.
