47th Test

England in South Africa Test Series - 1st Test

South Africa v England
England won by 288 runs
Played at Crusaders Ground, St George's Park, Port Elizabeth
13,14 February 1896 (3-day match)


  • South Africa v England
    England won by 288 runs
    South Africa out for 30 in 2nd innings...South Africa were dismissed in only 94 balls for 30, the lowest score until 1954-55 when New Zealand were dismissed for 26.
  • Lohmann's analysis of 8 for 7 set a new Test record and he ended the match - on the second day - with a hat-trick.
  • SMJ Woods was making his debut for England after playing for Australia.
Scorecard

George 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.

The Ashes - 2nd Test
England v Australia
Australia won by 3 wickets
Test no. 51 | 1896 season
Played at Old Trafford, Manchester
16,17,18 July 1896 (3-day match)

Scorecard
  • Ranji, the first Indian to play Test cricket, became the second batsman after Grace to score a hundred on debut for England.
  • He was the first to score a hundred before lunch in a Test match; on the third morning he took his overnight score of 41* to 154*, adding 113 runs in 130 minutes.
  • Brown kept wicket when Lilley's leg-breaks were required to break a stand.
  • G Giffen became the first to complete the Test career double of 1,000 runs and 100 wickets.


Kumar Shri Ranjitsinhji

Quote:
Ranji, an Indian prince, was probably one of the finest batsmen of all time, not only in terms of runs scored but also because he brought new strokes to the game. His keen eye, unorthodoxy and speed of reaction meant that introduced the late cut and leg glance, as well as the art of back-foot defence.
Pushing the laws to the limit
Quote:

Ranji's leg-glance

Gentlemen prefer blondes, apparently. Back in the 1890s they also preferred to score their runs on the off side. Leg-stump half-volleys were routinely patted back to the bowler ("try again, old bean"), and it wasn't until an Indian prince descended on the English game that a whole new zone of scoring was opened up to cricket. Having been taught by his coach to anchor his back foot in the crease to keep him in line against quick bowling, Ranjitsinhji discovered that he could use his wonderfully supple wrists to flick the straighter deliveries off his hips to the fine-leg boundary. Not everyone was taken with this tactic however - it was deemed immoral by some, although that might have stemmed more from the racist hostility that Ranji attracted from some of the more reactionary types at the MCC. But Neville Cardus described his strokes as "lovely magic", and by the time he'd played 15 Tests for England, averaging 44.95 with two hundreds, the Victorian public had been won over as well.
Verdict Innovative
Outcome Became part of the game

The Ashes - 3rd Test
England v Australia
England won by 66 runs
Test no. 52 | 1896 season
Played at Kennington Oval, London
10,11,12 August 1896 (3-day match)

Scorecard
  • Rain prevented play until 4.55pm. on the first day, caused 24 wickets to fall on the second, and led to Australia being dismissed for their lowest total in England until 1902.
  • Peel ended his Test career with the splendid analysis of 6 for 23; the fourth of those wickets was his hundreth in Test matches.
  • Five players threatened strike action before the start because of a dispute over match fees. Although Abel, Hayward and Richardson relented, Gunn and Lohmann refused to play.
England v Australia 1896

Quote:
....It was anybody's game on the third morning, everything depending on the condition of the ground. It was freely predicted that the wicket would improve, but such was far from being the case, the pitch being perhaps more difficult than ever. England's innings was finished off for 84, the Australians being left with 111 to get to win. This task they commenced shortly before half-past twelve, the excitement being of course at a very high pitch. In the second over, before a run had been scored, Darling was bowled, and then the Australians went from bad to worse, the climax being reached when the seventh wicket fell at 14. All this time, Hearne and Peel had bowled in wonderful form, the latter having been put on in place of Richardson directly Darling was out. The ninth wicket was lost at 25, and the Englishmen had the game in their hands, but McKibbin, by some plucky hitting, delayed the end, he total having reached 44 when Abel caught him most brilliantly at slip with one hand. Thus amidst great enthusiasm, England won the match by 66 runs.

England won by 9 wickets
Test no. 53 | 1897/98 season
Played at Sydney Cricket Ground
13,14,15,16,17 December 1897 (timeless match)

Scorecard
  • Ranjitsinhji, although ill, emulated H Graham by scoring a hundred in his first Test in Australia having done so in England.
  • MacLaren, deputising for AE Stoddart whose mother had died, scored a hundred in his first Test as captain.
  • Darling had the distinction of being the first left-hander to score a hundred in a Test match.
  • McLeod was run out by Storer when he left his crease after being bowled by a no-ball. His deafness prevented him from hearing the umpire's call.

The Ashes - 3rd Test
Australia v England
Australia won by an innings and 13 runs
Test no. 55 | 1897/98 season
Played at Adelaide Oval
14,15,17,18,19 January 1898 (timeless match)

Scorecard
  • J Darling became the first batsman to score two hundreds in the same rubber and the first to reach his century with a six which in those days involved hitting the ball right out of the ground as opposed to over the boundary. This was the first six ever hit in Test cricket without the aid of overthrows.
  • Storer had 3 consecutive stumpings in 1st Innings
More on Darling



Quote:
....Starting cricket when very young, he revealed remarkable ability just before his fifteenth birthday, when, in a two-day match for St Alfred's College on the Adelaide Oval, he scored 252 out of 470, so beating 209 by George Giffen - then the highest....

The Ashes - 4th Test
Australia v England
Australia won by 8 wickets
Test no. 56 | 1897/98 season
Played at Melbourne Cricket Ground
29,31 January, 1,2 February 1898 (timeless match)

Scorecard

Quote:
...Of the five test matches this was perhaps the most eventful. The Englishmen started in wonderful form by getting six wickets down for 57 runs, but after that they were quite outplayed, the Australians gaining a brilliant victory by eight wickets. The turning point of the Australians' first innings was the partnership of Clement Hill and Trumble, 165 runs being put on for the seventh wicket. Never before had Hill given quite so fine a display as his 183. He was batting a little over five hours and all things considered his innings may be described as perhaps the best seen in the Colonies during the season ...
Clement Hill made 188

More on him:


Quote:
...A specially brilliant batsman on hard pitches, Clem Hill scored 6,274 runs, average 52.28 in Sheffield Shield matches -- a record until beaten by Don Bradman. His highest innings was 365 not out for South Australia against New South Wales at Adelaide in December 1900, his average that season being 103.33. In similar matches he made 206 not out at Sydney in 1895 and 205 at Adelaide in 1909.

While able to drive hard to the off or straight, usually with the ball kept down, Clem Hill scored chiefly on the leg side by skilful strokes perfectly timed and placed, the way in which he turned straight balls clear of fieldsmen being exceptional. Brilliant square and late cutting made Hill delightful to watch and in defence his style claimed admiration while his patience was unlimited. A splendid field particularly in the deep, Clem Hill brought off one catch that will never be forgotten by the spectators at the third Test match at Old Trafford in 1902. When England wanted eight runs for victory with two wickets in hand Dick Lilley made a square-leg hit which looked like carrying the pavilion rails, but as Hill ran from long-on the wind seemed to check the force of the hit. The ball fell almost straight and Hill, racing across its flight, with outstretched hands, held it, so accepting a chance that few fieldsmen would have thought worth attempting. Australia won by three runs, and the victory, following success at Sheffield, where Hill scored 119, by far the highest innings in the match, gave them the rubber, a triumph to which Hill's amazing catch contributed to an unknown degree....

The Ashes - 5th Test
Australia v England
Australia won by 6 wickets
Test no. 57 | 1897/98 season
Played at Sydney Cricket Ground
26,28 February, 1,2 March 1898 (timeless match)

Scorecard
  • Australia won the 5-match series 4-1
  • Darling's hundred took only 91 minutes.
  • Tom Richardson ended his Test career by returning his best analysis. His 88 wickets in only 14 matches included 11 instances of five or more in an innings.
  • Darling was the first batsman to score three hundreds in the same Test rubber and the first to aggregate 500 runs in one

Quote:
Who hit the first six in Test history? asked Erik Verhagen from Holland

Prior to 1910 the ball had to be hit out of the ground for six runs to be awarded, otherwise it was a four (although for a while the custom in Australia had been to award five runs for a hit over the ropes, with the batsman losing the strike). The first to collect a six by hitting the ball out of the ground in a Test was the Australian Joe Darling, during his 178 against England at Adelaide in 1897-98. The South Australian Register reported that Darling moved from 98 to 104 with "a hit to square leg which sent the ball sailing out of the Oval" off the slow left-armer Johnny Briggs. He also hit Briggs twice over the rope for fives. In 1902 Darling, by then Australia's captain, was also the first to hit an out-of-the-ground six in a Test in England: he hit two during his 51 at Old Trafford.

England in South Africa Test Series - 1st Test
South Africa v England
England won by 32 runs
Test no. 58 | 1898/99 season
Played at Old Wanderers, Johannesburg
14,15,16 February 1899 (3-day match)

Scorecard

  • England led the 2-match series 1-0
  • Balls per over 5
  • Warner was the first to carry his bat through a completed innings on debut for England.
  • AE Trott was making his debut for England after appearing in three Tests for Australia .




Lord Hawke captained the side. Although he scored a duck and 5 in this match, much remains to be said about his career and philosophy.

The Ashes - 1st Test
England v Australia
Match drawn
Test no. 60 | 1899 season
Played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham
1,2,3 June 1899 (3-day match)

Scorecard
  • The first five-match rubber in England began with the first Test ever staged at Nottingham.
  • WG Grace, playing his last Test was 50 years and 320 days old when the match ended; only W Rhodes played Test cricket at a greater age, and by coincidence, he was making his debut in Grace's last match.

The Ashes - 2nd Test
England v Australia
Australia won by 10 wickets
Test no. 61 | 1899 season
Played at Lord's, London
15,16,17 June 1899 (3-day match)

Scorecard
  • Trumper, aged 21, scored a chanceless 135* in his second Test Match.
  • Jones returned the best figures of his 19 match career.


Victor Trumper

Quote:
...For this reason Trumper was, in proportion, more to be feared on treacherous wickets than on fast, true ones. No matter how bad the pitch might be from the combined effects of rain and sunshine, he was quite likely to get 50 runs, his skill in pulling good-length balls amounting to genius....


Quote:
...."A certain English batsman, vintage 1950, looked at this picture in my company and said: 'Was he really any good?' 'Why do you ask?' was my natural question. 'Well,' said this International, 'just look where he is - stumped by yards if he misses.' This sceptical England batsman had never in his life been so far out of his crease."...
