Picture of Headingley, Leeds

Established in 1890, this is one of the more popular grounds of England. The initial first-class match was held there in 1899, against Kent and test cricket was played at Headingley in 1889, between England and Australia. Headingley spectators have witnessed some great feats, including two Test triple-centuries by Don Bradman in 1930 and 1934. During the first innings Bradman scored 309 of his eventual 334 in a single day, the only instance of 300 in a day in a Test so far. It later hosted its first ODI between England and West Indies in 1973. The home of Yorkshire County Cricket, the Headingley ground wasn’t actually owned by the club until they finally bought it in 2005. The ground is named after a suburb of the city of Leeds, and it is linked to a rugby league ground, home of the Leeds Rhinos. There is no pavilion at Headingley and players have to make do with their dressing-room.
