The Investec Ashes Test series is levelled 1-1 as the two teams head to Edgbaston. After a rout at Lord’s demand for fast and bouncy wicket in the most hostile cricket stadium in England is high. To pacify that demand ground officials borrowed hot lamps free of charge from West Midlands Police after being confiscated from local cannabis growers.

The Country Cricket Stadium-Edgbaston has prepared pitch using lights normally used for the cultivation of cannabis in the hope of preparing the perfect surface for the third Investec Ashes Test.

With Australian cricket team enjyoing all the confusion around the hosts; the pressure is on the pitch curator Gary Barwell to make a pitch which will be typical Test cricket pitch.

This is not the first time Warwickshire country officials have used the hot lamps. The hope is that the Test will be a full package of romance as the pitch expected will produce humdinger match.

Edgbaston cricket stadium, which is known as least rain affected cricket ground in England, has suffered torrential rain in the last week, so the hot lamps helped to dry the outfield as well as assist bowlers to get greater face and bounce.

During the match the hot lamps will be in the ground if rain dampen the outfield, then it will be used to dry up as vast pavilion of Edgbaston County Cricket Stadium.
