Pitch: Pacer's used to dominate here, but like other grounds in England, it has been transformed into a batting paradise.

The lowest score is 92 by Zimbabwe against England. In 19 ODIs, including one no-result and an abandoned, the average runs scored by over here is 5.23.
Ends: Bristol Pavilion End, Ashley Down Road End
