There are 5 games at Edgbaston for the Cricket World Cup 2019 here in Birmingham. Banners have gone up in the City Centre, as well as in Edgbaston at the Cricket Ground. Was very sunny and hot when I was back in Birmingham and Edgbaston. Fans can get trains to Birmingham New Street or Moor Street and a bus down to Edgbaston (the 501 on matchdays I think). 10 photos in this gallery.

11th July 2019: the 2nd semi final between Qualifier 2 and Qualifier 3.

 

First 5 photos taken in Birmingham City Centre on the 22nd June 2019.

Leaving the Bullring and heading towards Birmingham New Street Station. This banner on St Martin's Queensway. Directions for fans to the taxis, Birmingham New Street and Birmingham Moor Street.

Banners on Navigation Street, including the #CWC19 hashtag.

Looking up Hill Street towards Big Brum, BM & AG and Victoria Square. Banners here include the Cricket World Cup trophy and the #CWC19 hashtag.

Most of the banners on Navigation Street near Grand Central and Birmingham New Street Station. This view from the top of Brunel Street near Suffolk Street Queensway.

Heading down Hill Street with more banners. I then went onto Station Street and caught a no 45 bus to the Pershore Road in Edgbaston. The Crown pub was covered in graffiti (it's been closed down for years).

Got off the no 45 bus on the Pershore Road. There is many banners lining this road, but is easier to see if you get off the bus. Just a matter of walking up the Edgbaston Road, checking out the Cricket Ground (opposite Cannon Hill Park).

Second bunch of 5 photos on a sunny and warm 22nd June 2019 in Edgbaston. Lets hope the remaining games has this weather, and not get rained off!

The blue Edgbaston Suite has the main ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 banners including the #CWC19 hashtag. Seen from Edgbaston Road.

The new stands and the suite were built in 2011. Including the South Stand and the West Stand. On match days I think the road will be closed (I think the 1 and 1A buses maybe able to get through on those days).

The Eric Hollies Stand near the River Rea. Another #CWC19 hashtag here, well two.

A peak into the stands on the other side at the City End. Now called the R.E.S. Wyatt Stand. With the spire of the Church of St Mary and St Ambrose behind.

The training ground up Edgbaston Road and Cannon Hill Road is now covered by these banners. Same ones along the car park on the Pershore Road as well.

If you are a regular bus user, then get the 1, 1A, 35, 45, 47, 61 or 63 National Express West Midlands buses to the game. Out of town fans, I expect will probably get the 501, or coaches. It is possible to walk from the City Centre. Or get a taxi.
