Match Notes

Australia tour of England 1948 News

  • 721 all out... in a day

    Essex were the only county to bowl the 1948 Australians out, and what's more they did so in a day - but not before the tourists had amassed a world record score

  • As great as the sum of their parts

    George Dobell picks his top five teams in the history of Test cricket

  • A quiet goodbye

    Perhaps Bradman's farewell was all the more memorable for being unspectacular

  • Sledgehammer Sam speaks

    As the clock ticks on the Invincibles, 60 years on from the tour that made them, Sam Loxton still talks as he played

  • Stamp of approval

    When the Don set his praise down on wood
