25th Test

England won 13 runs
Australia v England Sydney 28 Jan 1887


Scorecard

The great match, and also the most conspicuous triumph of the tour, the Englishmen winning by 13 runs, after being dismissed in their first innings for a total of 45. When stumps were drawn on the Saturday they did not seem to have even a remote chance of success, being only some 20 odd runs to the good with three wickets to fall in their second innings. On the Monday, however, they played up in splendid style, and gained a victory that might fairly be compared to the seven runs win of Australia over England at Kennington Oval in 1882.
Briggs, Flowers, and Sherwin batted so well that Australia had to go in with 111 to get to win. With the wicket in very fair order this seemed an easy task, and defeat was not thought of, but Barnes bowled so finely, and was so ably supported by Lohmann that the total only reached 97. Barring one mistake the English fielding was magnificent. Except that Giffen was still too ill to appear, the Australian team was almost a representative one, though Palmer and Horan should have been played in preference to Midwinter and McShane.

26th Test
England won 71 runs
Australia v England Sydney 25 Feb 1887

Quote:
The Australian team was very far indeed from a representative one, the only Victorian player on the side being Midwinter. Jones, however, was the only prominent Sydney man who was away. Having the best of the play all through, the Englishmen won by 71 runs. Lohmann's fine bowling in the first innings, and Barlow's batting being the main elements of success. Turner and Ferris bowled admirably for the Australians, but their exertions were not sufficient to avert defeat.
http://www.espncricinfo.com/wisdenal...ry/150139.html


  • GA Lohmann became the first bowler to take eight wickets in an innings of a Test match.
  • W Gunn both played and deputised as umpire in this match on the final morning when Swift was absent.
  • CTB Turner emulated WL Murdoch and AH Jarvis by holding a catch while substituting for the opposition.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/62421.html

More on Lohmann:



Quote:
On pure statistics, George Lohmann has a right to up there with the greatest Test bowlers of all time. Rated by contemporaries as the most difficult opponent, he bowled at little more than medium pace but was able to make the ball seam both ways, and his constant experimentation led to variations in angle, flight and pace. Add into the equation his metronomic accuracy, and he was often unplayable. He was no mean batsman either, fleet of foot and with a good eye, and a brilliant slip fielder. A fair, blue-eyed, handsome man, he was 21 when he first played for England in 1886 and had already made his mark with Surrey. He took one wicket in his first two Tests in 1886, but at The Oval he took 7 for 36 and 5 for 68 as England won by an innings. Thereafter he was a fixture in the side. He took his 50th Test wicket in only his 10th Test, and his hundred in his 16th. On the matting wickets of South Africa he was devastating - in 1896-96 he took 35 wickets in three Tests at 5.80. But in 1892 he contracted tuberculosis, and although spending every winter thereafter in South Africa helped his health, he was a far from well man. He extended his English career until 1896, but he was no longer able to shoulder the burden of bowling which had been his hallmark in earlier years. He emigrated to South Africa at the end of the season, playing two final seasons for Western Province, and he returned to England in 1901 as manager of the South African side. He died later that year aged only 36.

27th Test:
England won 126 runs
Australia v England Sydney 10 Feb 1888

Scorecard

Quote:
Played at SYDNEY, Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, February 10, 11, 13, 14, 15. In this match the two English teams joined their forces and put a combined eleven into the field against Australia. The colonial side, which included seven of the players who afterwards went to England, was very strong, but George Giffen's absence prevented it from being quite representative. Horan and Bruce, too, would have been better than some who were playing. The match was played on a ground much damaged by rain, and the Englishmen, having the upper hand throughout, won handsomely by 126 runs. Towards this brilliant and gratifying result the splendid bowling of Peel and Lohmann mainly contributed, the two men taking eighteen wickets between them. Shrewsbury's fine play in the first innings and Maurice Read's hitting in the second also demand recognition. Not since the visit of George Parr's team in 1863-64 had English cricket been so represented on an Australian ground.

In dry weather and on a hard wicket, confidence in the strength of English batting would have been almost unlimited, but the weather for weeks had been so bad, and the Australian bowling had proved so destructive, with the condition of the turf favouring it, that many quite dispassionate judges thought the game would be so fluky, that victory would depend almost entirely upon success in the toss....

29th Test:
13 Aug 1888
England won by an innings and 137 runs
England levels the Ashes 1-1

Scorecard

Quote:
...Those curious in statistics pointed out how often the number 13 recurred in this innings of Australia. It was played on the 13th of the month, Bannerman, Trott, and Ferris scored 13 runs each; Edwards scored twice 13, and Jarvis and Worrall, the only other men who made any runs at all, scored 13 between them, so that the total of the innings, without the two extras, was six times 13. The Englishmen went in shortly before four o"clock, and for a few minutes there was a good deal of anxiety. W. G. Grace was easily caught at third man and Ulyett was caught at the wicket, two men being out with only 6 runs on the scoreboard. Directly after this, however, runs came fast, and, thanks chiefly to the admirable stand made by Abel and Barnes, the score was 185 for five wickets, when play ceased for the day. Barnes had played a first-class innings of 62, and Abel was 65 not out....

30th Test
England won inns & 21 runs
England v Australia Manchester 30 Aug 1888

  • Australia were unable to to avoid following-on, the compulsory margin in 1888 being 80 runs.
  • The match ended at 1.52pm (before lunch on the second day), after Australia had been bowled out in 69 minutes.
  • Heavy rain before the match produced a soft, wet pitch and gave the side batting first an enormous advantage. A hot, drying sun on the second day made the pitch a vicious "sticky"; 18 wickets fell before lunch.

34th Test
England won by 2 wickets
England v Australia The Oval 11 Aug 1890

Series England led the 3-match series 2-0 winning this match by 2 wickets

  • Martin, a left-arm, medium-fast bowler from Kent, became the first to take twelve wickets on debut.
  • England won the match from an overthrow when Barrett missed an easy run-out.
Scorecard

Quote:
.......On his dismissal there came a collapse that recalled the great match in 1882, Mr. Cranston, Lohmann and Barnes being dismissed in such quick succession that with eight men out two runs were still wanted to win. Amid indescribable excitement Sharpe became Mr, McGregor's partner, and five maiden overs were bowled in succession, Sharpe being beaten time after time by balls from Ferris that broke back and missed the wicket. Then at last the Surrey player hit a ball to cover point, but Barrett, who had a chance of running out either batsman, overthrew the ball in his anxiety, and a wonderful match ended in a victory for England by two wickets. Martin in the whole match took twelve wickets for 102 runs - a splendid performance.

35th Test
Australia won 54 runs
Australia v England Melbourne 1 Jan 1892

Played at MELBOURNE, Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, January 1, 2, 4, 5, 6. This, the first of the three matches against Combined Australia, excited an extraordinary amount of interest. It lasted into the fifth day, and, after a struggle which by general consent had rarely or never been surpassed in the colonies, was won by the Australians by 54 runs. The Englishmen lost the game on the Tuesday afternoon, when they went in for the last innings with 213 runs wanted to win. With the wicket still in good order they entertained little doubt of accomplishing theirtask, and when Grace and Stoddart, on starting the innings, had hit up 60 runs without being separated, Australia's chance seemed very remote. However, at 60 Grace was caught at mid-off and Stoddart bowled in trying to pull a long-hop. Then came such a collapse on the part of the English batsmen that before the drawing of stumps there were seven wickets down. On the Wednesday morning the remaining players did their best, but the innings was all over for 158. In the early stages of the match some fine cricket was shown on both sides. Bruce batted most brilliantly for Aystralia and Bannerman, though his play was intolerably slow to look at, rendered invaluable service to his side. His two innings of 45 and 41 lasted respectively three hours and a quarter and four hours. W. G. Grace's 50 was a capital display, and Bean, in getting the same number, showed better cricket than on any other occasion during the tour. The Australians worked very hard to win and fully deserved their victory. The Combined team was made up of four players from Victoria, five from New South Wales, and two from South Australia. Not the least noteworthy feature in a remarkable match was George Giffen's complete failure as a batsman. Turner and Trott bowled admirably in the last innings, but the most sensational piece of bowling in the match was that of M'Leod, who, in the Englishmen's first innings, got rid of Abel, Grace, and Stoddart in two overs. Moses strained his leg on the opening day, and suffered more or less from the effects of his accident for the rest of the Australian season.

  • F Hearne was making his debut for South Africa after playing twice for England.
  • Wood scored the first century by a wicket-keeper in Test matches; it was his only hundred in first-class cricket.
Scorecard

Quote:
Owing to the absence of A. B. Tancred, the best all-round cricketer in South Africa, and two of three other prominent players, the home team was not fully representative. The South African eleven went in first, but with the exception of F. Hearne (24), G. Cuffs (18) and W. H. Milton, an old Malborough boy (21), fared badly. The Englishmen treated the home bowling with scant courtesy, and Wood, by some vigorous cricket, hit up 134 not out, in the home team's second innings F. Hearne made 23 and C. Mills 21, but the general resistance offered to the English bowling was poor, the visitors finishined their tour with a brilliant victory by an innings and 189 runs.

  • Australia won the 3-match series 2-1
Scorecard

Quote:
The third meeting with Combined Australia was the last match of the tour. As some compensation for their defeats at Melbourne and Sydney, the Englishmen won in a single innings with 230 runs to spare. It was a brilliant victory, but inasmuch as the Englishmen batted on a perfect wicket, and the Australians had to go in when the pitch had been runied by rain, it cannot be pretended that the result represented with any accuracy the merits of the two elevens. In justice to the English team however, it should be mentioned that before the rain came on they had scored 490 for nine wickets. This being the case, it is not unreasonable to suppose that even had the weather remained fine, the game would still have ended in their favour. Stoddart's batting and Briggs's bowling were the features of the game. In scoring 134 Stoddart was at the wickets three hours and fifty minutes, his hits including two 5's and fifteen 4's. He gave three chances, but not one of them was easy, and from first to last he played in his best form. Grace's 58 was quite faultless, and the only mistake in Peel's admirable 83 - an innings which lasted three hours - was a hard return to Giffen when he had scored 60. Briggs, it will be noticed, took six wickets in each innings of Australia.

  • England made no attempt to score 198 runs in 135 minutes.

England won by 10 runs
Played at Sydney Cricket Ground
14,15,17,18,19,20 December 1894 (timeless match)




Forced to follow-on yet won

Sydney - 1894-95
Australia amassed 586. Sydney Gregory, who later captained Australia in 1912, scored 201. Captain, George Giffen, one of the finest all-rounders of his day, scored 161. F.A. Iredale (81) and J.M. Blackham (74) were the other principal contributors. Tom Richardson, hailed as one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, claimed 5 for 181.
England replied with 325, A.Ward and J. Briggs contributing 75 and 57 respectively. Giffen claimed 4 for 75. Trailing by 261 runs in the first innings, England were forced to follow-on and scored 437 in the second. Ward hit 117 and J.T. Brown 53. Giffen again claimed 4 wickets for 164 runs. Australia were dismissed for 166 and Yorkshire's slow left arm bowler, Robert Peel whom C.B. Fry rated as the best of his kind, claimed 6 for 67, to give England, a surprising but exciting 10 run victory. It was the first Test Match to go into the sixth day.

43rd Test
The Ashes - 2nd Test
Australia v England
England won by 94 runs
Played at Melbourne Cricket Ground
29,31 December 1894, 1,2,3 January 1895 (timeless match)




  • Giffen was the first captain to give his opponents first innings on winning the toss.
  • Stoddart's innings was the highest in Test for England and the highest by an England captain until 1974-75 when MH Denness scored 188.
  • Coningham took Mclaren's wicket with his first ball in his only Test to claim the first instances of a wicket falling to the first ball of a Test match.
  • In England's second innings all eleven batsmen reached double figures for the first time in a Test match innings.
Scorecard

The definitive captain's innings

Played at MELBOURNE, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, December 29,31, January 1, 2, 3. The second of the test matches resulted in a well-earned win for the Englishmen by 94 runs. On the opening day the wicket was in a very bad state from the recent rain, and George Giffen, on winning the toss, put England into bat. His policy proved a wise one, the innings being finished off in two hours for a total of 75. The wicket had considerably improved when Australia went in, but Richardson bowled so finely that before the end of the afternoon the eleven were all out for 123, or only 48 to the good. A dry Sunday allowed the ground to thoroughly recover itself, and the Englishmen in their second innings batted under the most favourable conditions. It was not until the fourth day's cricket was well advanced that they were got rid of, the total reaching 475. Mr. Stoddart, risking nothing, played a great game for his side, his innings of 173 lasting five hours andn twenty minutes. Australia wanted 428 to win, and when on the fourth day 190 went up with only one wicket down, the chances seemed against the Englishmen. Brockwell's bowling, however, brought about a sudden change, and with several batsmen failing, the score for nine wickets was only 268. It then seemed as though the match would soon be over, but Iredale and turner added 60 runs together and played out time. On the fifth morning however, the end came in the second over, Iredale being bowled by Peel.

More on Trott



Quote:
From 'The Cricketer'
Rumbustious, ill-fated Albert Trott of Victoria, Australia, Middlesex and England was born 100 years ago on February 6, but the centenary passed all but unnoticed. This is not entirely surprising since Trott, who created many a vivid memory for opponents and spectators alike, was apt to be forgotten when it mattered most. The Australian selectors forgot him - or ignored him - when they picked their team for England in 1896, though only a year earlier he had burst into Test cricket with unparalleled force. He so far forgot himself in his benefit match in 1907 that he took four wickets in four balls and then the hat-trick, winding up proceedings foolishly early at a time when people were prepared to roll up in their thousands to pay cash tribute to a stalwart of county cricket - as long as the match lasted...
Quote:
....His batting was powerful, boisterous, and never quite as dependable after the monstrous blow off Noble. His massive hands held practically everything within reach. And his bowling, slung with a round-arm delivery, contained most of the arts. Warning against his fast ball was seldom sufficient insurance, and his slower ball had batsmen fanning at air. He actually played for England - on the tour of South Africa in 1898-99, when he left his mark with 17 wickets at less than twelve apiece in the two Test matches; but as the seasons went by, his body spread under the effects of ale - often taken along the boundary from admiring spectators - and from dropsy, which also induced melancholia. He became an umpire in 1910, but by 1914, living alone in digs, `Albatrott' had had enough. He wrote a will on the back of a laundry ticket, leaving his wardrobe and £4 in cash to the landlady. Then he shot himself. We are now passing through years that are dotted with centenaries of Golden Age cricketers. None of them was remotely comparable to Albert Edwin Trott.

Albert Trott's mighty hit

A look back at a 111-year-old record: one of the biggest and most famous shots played at Lord's




Albert Trott: "He had a heart of gold and was as simple as a child" © PA Photos


Changing attitudes and constantly improving technology mean that while big hitting was once the domain of a handful of players - Gilbert Jessop, Arthur Wellard and Ian Botham for example - it is now a required element of most batsmen's arsenals. Despite that, one hitting record has eluded players for almost 111 years - clearing the Lord's pavilion.
Opened in 1890, the iconic building is permanently in the batsmen's firing line, but only one has cleared it properly - Albert Trott in the summer of 1899. Many have tried and a few came close.

Earlier this month West Indian Kieron Pollard on his Somerset debut clubbed Middlesex's Shaun Udal into the top tier; in 1977 I was present at the Gillette Cup final when Glamorgan's Mike Llewellyn hit John Emburey into the guttering in front of the north turret. But Trott's place in cricket history remains. Trott had already played for Australia when, overlooked by selectors for the 1896 tour, he travelled to England under his own steam (although on the ship carrying the Australians, who were captained by his brother) and set about qualifying for Middlesex. By 1898 he was playing county cricket and that winter played two Tests for England in South Africa.
Renowned as a big hitter, he wielded a 3lb bat in an era where the norm was around 2lb 3ozs and anything over 2lb 8ozs was deemed a club. He was also a very good bowler and in 1899 took 237 wickets and scored 1175 runs.

Source








Albert Trott 10 for 42, Middlesex v Somerset, 1900
A brilliant allrounder - before drink got the better of him - Trott played Tests for both England and Australia. With the bat, he is best remembered as the only man to clear the pavilion at Lord's with a straight drive. With the ball he was equally devastating, most famously in his benefit match in 1907 when he took four wickets in four balls and followed with a hat-trick. So quickly did he wrap up the match that he lost a day's gate money and quipped, "I have bowled myself into the poor house." On a drying wicket at Taunton in 1900 he was at his best, needing no assistance from fielders for nine of the ten wickets he took, and his return would have been much better but for a last-wicket stand of 46 in Somerset's 89.

zee, I am just wondering, are you like in a bet with someone to make 2000 posts on 2000 tests? Why are you working your bum off finding information about 2000 tests from like a hundered years before? It has to painful and time-consuming. Unless you are in a bet [that too, for a good amount of money] I really dont see the point in so much effort, not to discourage you or anyhting, just saying

Dont you have something better to do? Maybe something like a job ?
