Edgbaston's Eric Hollies Stand
Formerly known as the Rea Bank, after the River Rea which runs immediately to its rear, the stand was renamed in 1989 after the Warwickshire and England leg-spinner Eric Hollies.

It was rebuilt in 2003 with 5,900 seats, an increase of 1,300 over its predecessor. The design, which won a Civic Trust Award in 2003, features a series of eight aluminium canopies suspended over the single tier of seating on steel masts, appearing to hover over the crowd beneath.

It is known as the most raucous area of the ground - never more so than on T20 finals day, when this picture was taken in August 2014. In the foreground, Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff is about to make his comeback for Lancashire Lightning in the final against the Birmingham Bears.
