    The two mentions of "Stanley Rouse" should read Stanley Rous.

    Final paragraph - the cricket game was played on 11th, 12th and 14th October 1946.

    "Walter Hammond" should read Wally Hammond.

    "Washbrook" is Cyril Washbrook.

    "Wright" is Douglas Wright.

    "Herbert" is Morgan Herbert.

    "Smith" is Thomas Smith.

    "Cumming" is Kenneth Cumming.

    Finally, in the last paragraph, it's not England playing, but the MCC.

    Also, in the final sentence, "England score 208", that's Wally Hammond's individual score. The MCC's (not England's) score as a whole was 477.
