Description:

Scarce colonial engraving of the visiting English cricket team 1876–77 tour of Australia and New Zealand that became known as the first Test cricket tour of Australia by the English cricket team.

The English team is sometimes referred to as James Lillywhite’s XI. In all, they played 23 matches but only three including the two Tests are recognised as first-class. The first match started at the Adelaide Oval on 16 November 1876 and the last at the same venue on 14 April 1877. There were fifteen matches in Australia and, between January and March, eight in New Zealand.
