    The match seen here is England v South Africa.

    The location is The Oval.

    It was a 3-day match, played on 17, 19 and 20 August 1935.

    "Wyatt" is England captain Bob Wyatt.

    "Siedie" is jack Siedie.

    "Mitchell" is Bruce Mitchell.

    "he finishes the day on 128" - actually, 128 was the score he was out for.
