BBC Test Match Special to replay epic Headingley Ashes 2019 Test in full

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

BBC Test Match Special have announced that they will be replaying their commentary of last year’s Headingley Ashes Test, headlined by Ben Stokes’ fourth-innings heroics, in full.

The game was an instant classic, with Stokes’ knock rated as one of the best in Test history. After being bowled out for 67, England completed a national record-chase on the fourth day, with Stokes and Jack Leach adding an unbroken 76 for the final wicket in one of cricket’s most dramatic finishes.

The first day’s TMS coverage will be available to listen to on the BBC Sport website and app from 10.25 am on Wednesday, April 8. Sky Sports have also announced that they will be replaying the decisive fourth day of the Headingley Test in full on Easter Saturday, April 11.
