Event Information

Screening just before The Ashes come to Edgbaston, The Edge is a compelling, funny and emotional insight into a band of brothers’ rise to the top of their sport and the huge sacrifices they were forced to make. No England cricket team rose higher…and fell harder.

Between 2009 and 2013, the England Test cricket team rose from the depths of the rankings to become the first and only English side to reach world number one since ICC records began. Captain Andrew Strauss and coach Andy Flower took over a team that included some of the true greats of the English game and transformed them into a phenomenal winning machine before the pressure and scrutiny began to fracture mind, body and soul.

Featuring incredible unseen footage from the period and captivating new interviews from star players and coaching staff including Sir Alastair Cook, Andrew Strauss, Kevin Pietersen, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott, Monty Panesar and Andy Flower, The Edge captures the team’s intense but often hilarious pursuit of success.
