• Short Summary

    Footage of the Second Test Match at Lords between Australia and England.

  • Description

    Titles read: "SECOND TEST MATCH ALSO DRAWN".

    Lords Cricket Ground (Marylebone Cricket Club), London.

    Various shots of rain at Lords; people in the stand with umbrellas, protective trolleys (?) being rolled over the ground.

    We then see several shots of the matches over three days. Commentator mentions W A Brown and Bradman of the Australian team, and Compton and Wellard on the England side. The players walk off at the end of the match; spectators crowd onto the pitch.

    At King's Cross we see the Australian Cricket Team boarding the 'Commonwealth of Australia' steam train and setting off for their next match with Derbyshire at Chesterfield.
