A DVD of the remarkable Edgbaston Test is being rush released to satisfy the remarkable public appetite for English cricket



In almost less time that it took for Andrew Flintoff to be proclaimed as the new Ian Botham, a DVD of the remarkable Edgbaston Test has been being rush released to satisfy the public's burgeoning appetite for English cricket.

In days of old it took months for highlights videos to find their way to the market, but modern technology, aided by the ability to bypass the cumbersome problems of nationwide distribution to retail outlets, means that within a fortnight the new DVD, entitled The Greatest Test was available.

For once, the title might not just be marketing hyperbole. Few games - in fact, few sporting occasions - can match the ebb and flow of fortunes of Edgbaston. For three-and-a-bit days the two best teams in the world went head to head, and the action and drama never let up right to the last ball.

The DVD is 95 minutes long and can be bought by clicking here
