Edgbaston often provides a solid batting surface while being somewhat favourable to bowlers. The wicket does not typically have a level surface like Trent Bridge or any grass like Lord's. The bowlers are always kept in the game with the seam, bounce, and turn that it offers with some application.

India: Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj/Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah(C)
