Match Notes


    • After this match, the last of the rubber originally scheduled, some Australian ladies burned a bail, sealed the ashes in an urn and presented it to the victorious captain of the English team. The urn, together with its embroidered velvet bag, is housed in the Memorial Gallery at Lord's.
