    The Oval, Kennington, London.

    Various shots of English batsman (Hammond ?) reaching his century in cricket match against New Zealand. England retire after this.

    The England team come out of the pavilion to field. They are followed by New Zealand opening pair, Weir and Mills. Shots of T C Lowry batting. More shots of cricket play. Good shots of New Zealand wickets falling - they had to follow on.

    N.B. There appear to be some problems with the speed of the sound on this item. This item was miss labelled in the tape sleeve as being from 31/76.

    This material is from 1930s Extras Reel 4 - keep separately from original newsreels.
