"It's been a fascinating series because you just don't know what's going to to happen... It is a great ground we get fantastic support here but I think I'm a bit bias! The guys who played the ODI here at the start of the year say the support was fantastic and I think we'll get that again."

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of distributing a terrorist publication, which is contrary to Section 2 of the Terrorism Act 2006.

The men, both aged 18, were detained at their home addresses in the Alum Rock and Washwood Heath areas at approximately 7am this morning (Tuesday 4 August).

The action, taken by officers from the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit, was pre-planned and intelligence led. It relates to the supply of a suspected ideological text-not an operational manual, such as bomb making instructions.

There was no immediate threat to public safety.

The two men are currently being questioned at a police station within the West Midlands.
