An end-of-match silk scorecard from the match at 'Lord's Ground. MCC and Ground v. Australians. Thursday and Friday, June 11, 12, 1896'
Printed in blue on white silk, now framed and glazed (visible surface 245 × 185 mm).
A few light creases and light marginal spotting; in excellent condition.
Australia lost by an innings and 18 runs ... and 18 was Australia's total first innings score! Kelly, Graham and Trott scored 8, 4 and 6 respectively; Darling was the last man standing (on nought), Giffen was unable to take to the field so only ten men played, but Gregory, Iredale, Hill, Trumble, Eady and McKibbin ALL scored ducks! Bowling figures were Pougher 5-0, Hearne 4-4. This is still Australia's lowest first-class score, a record they hope won't ever be broken.
