Tim Paine on Edgbaston: 'I could name 15 venues more intimidating in world cricket'

Tim Paine has fired back at suggestions Edgbaston is the most intimidating cricket venue in the world, while also revealing a supposed Churchillian wisdom Australia will embrace during the Ashes. Much has been made of the hostile reception awaiting Australia in Birmingham, especially for the reformed ball-tampering trio of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft. Paine told a reporter that he could name 15 venues more intimidating than the location of the first Test, and noted that a quote, often attributed to Winston Churchill but which may not have been uttered by him, is being used as one of the 17-man squad’s mantras.
