Description:

Engraving of the cricket match between Australia v. England played at Kennington Oval, August 28, 29, 1882 : won by Australians by 7 runs . 

Australia won the only Test match of the tour by 7 runs scoring 63 and 122 to England’s 101 and 77. England had seemed likely to win after making 51 for the loss of only 2 wickets. In the final innings the most legendary collapse in cricket history followed with England’s batsmen unable to get the ball past the fields men. The Ashes legend was born when the Sporting Times published this obituary the following day: “In affectionate remembrance of English cricket which died at the Oval on 29th August 1882. Deeply lamented by a large circle of sorrowing friends and acquaintances, R.I.P. N.B.: The Body will be cremated and The Ashes taken to Australia.”
