    University teams play cricket at Lord's.

  • Description

    87th Varsity cricket match. Cricket's "Ascot" - made as brilliant a picture as ever at Lords.

    Lord's Cricket Ground, St. John's Wood, London.

    Players leave the pavilion. L/S of play. Closer view of the game. Nice M/S of one of the teams posing. L/S of crowds milling around. Intertitle reads: "Ranji's nephew K.S. Duleepsinhji." M/Ss of players batting. M/S of the other team posing. C/U of K.S. Duleepsinhji. C/U of another player - not named. L/S of the team as they stand up and walk away from their team shot pose. Presumably the teams are from Oxford and Cambridge universities.

    Lots of cuts follow - team shots, more shots of play, players leaving the pavilion, crowds milling around - some shots are repeats of material featured in cut story.
