Summary
  • 1878 Australian team to England. Original photograph of the team with title,"The Australian twelve", and players' names printed on page, and with page affixed to mount. Following a poor showing in their first match, against Nottinghamshire, the Australians, led by Dave Gregory, were keen to show their best in the match against the MCC."The Demon bowler" Fred Spofforth and "The Very Devil" Harry Boyle destroyed the team which one newspaper had stated was "as good as could be found to represent London and England ... The MCC side included W.G. Grace and bowlers Alfred Shaw and Fred Morley. The bowlers did well enough but the English bats were cut down by the withering firepower and accuracy of the Australian bowlers. The MCC made just 33 in its first innings. Spofforth took 6 for 4 including a hat-trick. Their second innings was even shorter - totalling 19, with Spofforth taking 4 for 16 and Boyle 6 for 3. The Australians needed just 12 to win and scored them for the loss of just one wicket. There were over 4700 witnesses to this devastation, including 400 Australians, and both sides were very vocal in their support"--Summary from Auction notes.
