Significant and much-needed redevelopment has seen dramatic improvements at Headingley, with the new pavilion now joined by a brand new stand opposite at the Football Stand End.
Still, though, the thought remains that architecturally the ground has been left behind by Trent Bridge, Old Trafford and Edgbaston.
What Headingley does so often deliver, in all forms of the game, is great cricket. England may perhaps be disappointed to have only one game here given a superb overall ODI record in Leeds and an even better one in recent years.
Historical results here indicate a clear bias towards chasing rather than setting a target, while those who have won the toss and chose to bat first have fared particularly badly with just three wins from 14!
Another thing that does need to be noted is the struggles they have here if it rains. Three ODIs here in the last decade have been total write-offs.
