The Headingley Cricket Ground, sometimes referred to as “the egg,” is a cricket ground in the Headingley Stadium area of Leeds, England. It is connected to the Headingley Rugby Stadium by a common main stand, although the main entrance to the cricket ground is at the other Kirkstall Lane end. It has played host to Test matches since 1899 and seats 18,350 people.

Headingley, nestled in the quiet lanes of rural Leeds, staged one of cricket’s most incredible comebacks when England beat Australia by 18 runs in 1981. Following on 227 runs behind and 135 for 7 in their second innings, England’s combined heroics of Ian Botham with the bat and Willis with the ball overcame odds of 500/1 to defeat Australia.

Don Bradman made two Test triple-centuries for Yorkshire at Headingley in 1930 and 1934, the second of which was his first double century. Bradman amassed 309 out of his eventual 334 runs in a single day during the first innings against New Zealand in 1965, making him only the third individual to achieve 300 runs in a day during a Test (and just the second overall). John Edrich also scored an undefeated Test triple hundred for Surrey against New Zealand in 1965. And, fittingly enough, Geoff Boycott achieved his hundreth hundred versus Australia in 1977.

The name comes from a suburb of Leeds, and it is near to a rugby league stadium where the Leeds Rhinos play. Headingley does not have a pavilion; instead, players must make do with a modern changing room in the stands. The wicket is changeable, and – particularly when there is cloud cover – it aids seam bowling.
