Some statistical highlights between India and England at Edgbaston over the years:

The great Vinoo Mankad was out hit-wicket at Edgbaston

  1. The last time these two teams played a test was at 1996 which England won
  2. Nasser Hussain scored his maiden test match century in this ground and won the man of the match award. (Rahul Dravid who was substituting before his debut that he played at Lords in the next test match held the catch offered by Hussain off the bowling of Javagal Srinath)
  3. Javagal Srinath scored his only half century (52 off 65 including 9 hits to the fence) of his career at England and top scored for the Indian batting line up. He batted at no.9. He also bowled his record spell at England in Tests picking up 4 wickets for 103 runs at this ground.
  4. Sachin Tendulkar scored his 9th century in Tests and his first at this ground. Incidentally that’s the only test he has played here thus far. Also interestingly, none apart from sSchin from the current Indian team touring this time has played before at this ground. Not even Rahul Dravid!
  5. In a bizarre dismissal, Vinoo Mankad’s was out hit-wicket when his hat fells on his wicket, England v India, 3rd Test, Edgbaston, July 6, 1974
