If you bought a ticket for an under 16, as it is a Covid test event under official guidelines, under 16s are not allowed to attend.

You are given the option of a full refund - ........or upgrading your child ticket to an adult ticket by paying the difference between a child and adult ticket.

This adult ticket will give your child access to the game.

I have my own opinion, but wondered what others' thought.

under 16s  not allowed,  yet upgrade child ticket for adult ticket, the under 16 can gain access ?Confused

Exactly.  In my book it can only amount to either breaking the COVID guidelines or disgraceful ripping off of punters - and very likely, both.

Wrong Bloody Test.

Interestingly, Edgbaston are NOW saying that Under 16s will not be able to attend.  And even those who upgraded their Under 16 ticket to an Adult ticket will not be admitted!

Freddie Flintoff hit one to his dad in the crowd.......and he dropped it.

Was that day 3 in 2005 Whispering? I was at day 2 of that epic match. Warne bowling Strauss with one that pitched 5 feet outside off stump is one of the greatest things I've ever seen live.

I thought I had dementia strontium. I am not sure but I don’t think so. I will endeavour to find out.

I also think you might be getting Strauss mixed up with Gatting and the ball of the Century?
By:

No, Warne bowled Strauss at Edgbaston in 2005. Gatting was 93 at Old Trafford. Well worth a look if you haven't seen it/don't remember it.

That Shane Warne ball to Strauss at Edgbaston in 2005 was one of the most amazing deliveries I have ever seen.

Well worth a look for anybody who hasn't seen it.

I'm going to the 1st 2 days. Having watched a fair bit of the 1st test I'll be backing new zealand.

Be careful old chap. KW might be out, Stone might play, Leach will p,ay, England might win the toss. Lots of if’s and buts but if England ba5 wellon day 1 you will be behind the 8 for the rest of the Test.

True, and if the opposite happens, I'll be ahead. That's gambling i guess.

Kane williamson out, new zealand out to 3.25. Gonna back them i think.

I really can't call it so will wait and see. I do expect a reaction from England and the English attack. Foreigners usually lift their game at Lords. Edgbaston is well suited to England but I guess also to Boult, Southee and the big lump.

Morning All

With only very short break between the end of this match and the start of the World Championship Test Final it will be interesting to see what the NZ starting line up will be.

I do expect some changes from them.

I also expect a better performance from England on a ground where they usually do well and i believe the inclusion of a specialist spinner this time around is a must.
It will be a good toss to win.

As far as betting goes i'm in the wait and see camp.

Whatever you decide

Irony of irony that NZ are using this as a warm up for The Big One!

I wonder how England feel about that. I hope they are angry and ashamed particularly after day 5 of the last Test!

No place for discrimination in our sport

.... from the ECB

Players. coaches, officials, supporters

Laugh

Why did the Umpires drop their case?

At least the crowd had the good graces to applaud the phoney statement with genuine sincerity!

What do they know of cricket that cricket only know! Well done Edgbaston!

Glad Stone is playing. I think he might be part of the Ashes or rather an important part.

At least NZ get on with the overs. 8 in 35 minutes is far more than England could achieve.

Timtums running scared of the delta. Cancelled his trip to Egbaston when he realised the population demographic.  Been offering to buy him a pint for months. 7ft masked up vaxxed up and perrified he is whispering.
I know a man of your calibre unless over 65 will be walking around un masked and un vaxxed like a true boss and out drinking and living in no fear Wink
