A beloved and beautiful ground, Trent Bridge has seen significant renovation over recent years. All of that redevelopment has improved the appearance of the ground and its facilities, but it has left the outfield smaller and an unusual shape, with a straight rather than curved boundary on one side that can be frighteningly short.
Combined with a flat pitch and there being generally less swing here with the white ball than the red, it has become an absolute batting paradise in recent years.
England have set two world record ODI scores here in the last three years and, extraordinary as it may seem, it will not be a huge shock when someone racks up 500 here. It could even be during this tournament.
Pakistan have a fine bowling attack, but face both England and West Indies here during the World Cup. They are the two teams perhaps best equipped to make truly monster totals, while New Zealand’s estimable bowling attack will not relish taking on India’s all-star batting line-up.
There look to be plenty of matches here in this tournament where fine bowling attacks will take on formidable batting line-ups, which could well make Trent Bridge games among the more spectacular of the round-robin stage.
