Resumption of Play
Resumption of Play
Saturday crowds at Headingley await the umpires, and the England batsmen, during the 1981 Ashes Test Match where England were following-on after a large Australian first innings score. Against all the odds, England eventually won by a narrow margin thanks to a monumental innings by Ian Botham. (This was only the 2nd time in Test history that a team following-on succeeded in winning the game.)
