Trent Bridge Cricket Ground Profile

England’s Trent Bridge Cricket Ground is based in Nottingham and hosts Test, ODI and T20I cricket. It is also the home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and their T20 Blast side Notts Outlaws. Trent Bridge has also been selected to host the One-Day Cup final between 2020 and 2024.

The ground is named after the bridge that crosses the near-by River Trent. It was first used as a cricket ground in the 1830s but hosted its first Test match in 1899 when England faced Australia. Trent Bridge has undergone plenty of redevelopment over the years and is now considered one of the best grounds to watch international cricket. The first ODI clash held at Trent Bridge took place in 1974 when England welcomed Pakistan. The first T20I was a game between India and Bangladesh during the 2009 T20 World Cup.

Memorable milestones include India batsman Sachin Tendulkar passing the 11,000 Test run mark in 2007 and Denis Compton’s 278 against Pakistan in 1954. Stuart Broad also took 8-15 in just one innings when England faced Australia in the Ashes in 2015.

What to look for when betting on matches at Trent Bridge

Trent Bridge is great for batting and has produced some of England’s highest-ever scores, particularly in ODI cricket. It’s a consistent surface that lends itself to record-breaking run-chases and daunting totals. It does mean that it can be hard going for bowlers at times in limited-overs contests. In Test cricket, both Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad have done well and sit first and third in the top wicket-taker list. While Shane Warne predictably found a way to take wickets, the pitch has historically suited pace attacks.
