Former England wicketkeeper Jack Russell has completed an oil painting of the scene of England fielding during the 2019 Ashes Test Match at Emerald Headingley.

The painting features a Jofra Archer bouncer flying past the batsmen’s head in front of a packed-out Emerald Stand. The match itself will live long in any cricket fans’ memory, with Ben Stokes’ heroics on the fourth day completing one of the greatest ever comebacks, and this canvas is the perfect memento to the game.

The original painting is set to be displayed on stairwell up to the East Stand Long Room at Emerald Headingley, allowing Yorkshire Members the best view of it. There are also a limited number of prints available to purchase, but with just 100 made, they will be snapped up quickly.


Russell, who claimed 153 catches and 12 stumpings for England in Test cricket, has forged a career in painting since retiring from cricket and can certainly be very proud of the results on this occasion.
