Stumped by signs

All the streets there are named after famous cricket grounds.

Lilac Hill Vista runs north-south and Edgbaston east-west, but where the two intersect could be a good reason to ask for an umpire’s review. Because after the junction, Lilac Hill suddenly changes into a (very short) part of Edgbaston Drive, the last bit a cul-de-sac only about 30m long.

There are only two houses in it, and it seems the scoreboard has been hit for a six, because one is number 2, the other number 19.

The strange signage has caught out many passers-by. Some stop and take photos of the signpost that shows Edgbaston travelling in east, west and south, others shake their heads and move on.
