Warwickshire v Nottinghamshire, LVCC1, Day 1, Edgbaston, 15/07/13

Edgbaston is one of the most impressively developed Test Match grounds in the country, and it's always nice to pay it a visit, especially as us Glamorgan fans get to see so little Division 1 Championship cricket.
That said, it's a bit rich, even for the Champion County, to double its admission prices from £10 to £20 for a day's cricket.
On another glorious July day, Warwickshire batted first and took a safety first approach, scoring only 54 by lunch off 31 overs.

The impressive Edgbaston

By the afternoon, Warwickshire had moved on largely due to an impressive piece of batting by Laurie Evans and Tim Ambrose.
