The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted by the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) decision to award Emerald Headingley an Ashes Test in 2023.

Yorkshire’s Chief Executive Mark Arthur believes that the decision to select Emerald Headingley as a host venue for one of the most coveted matches in the sport is due to its strong commitment to the wider game, and Test Cricket in particular.

“The Club are absolutely thrilled to be hosting an Ashes Test Match in 2023,” Arthur said.

“We pride ourselves as a highly successful Test venue and have a long-standing commitment to Test cricket, including the unparalleled provision of several leading lights in the England national side. Our work at grassroots level is unrivalled, we have well established BME and South Asian engagement programmes and have recently enhanced our pre-match practice facilities.
