England vs. New Zealand, Headingley Carnegie
24 May, 2013 - 28 May, 2013
Headingley Carnegie Stadium, Leeds.
The second test match of New Zealand's tour of England takes place at Headingley Carnegie Cricket Ground, near Leeds in late May.
Home to Yorkshire County Cricket Club (plus Leeds' rugby league and union teams at an adjoining ground sharing the main stand), Leeds' Headingley Carnegie Stadium first hosted Test cricket in 1899.
In 1930, Headingley witnessed Sir Donald Bradman's epoch-making innings of 334 in the Ashes Test. In 1981, England beat Australia by 18 runs at this ground, providing what some claim to be Test Cricket's most incredible reversal (odds were 500-1 against an England victory).
Current seating capacity at the ground is 17,000, although redevelopment plans were announced in 2006. The newly renovated ground was renamed the Headingley Carnegie Stadium. Its seating capacity will increase to 20,000 and ambitious plans include a £12 million new pavilion and Media Centre.
