"THE BIRTH OF THE ASHES"

August 29, 1882.

Fred 'Demon' Spofforth had not liked the way 'Father of Cricket' WG Grace had affected the dismissal of Sammy Jones. He stormed into the #England dressing room where Grace was padding up, getting ready to chase 85 to win The Oval Test. Calling Grace a bloody cheat, Spofforth said, "This will lose you the match". Spofforth, who had taken 7 wickets in the first innings ripped England apart; England lost by 7 runs and Spofforth finished with 14 for 90 in the Test. According to #CricketCountry historian Arunabha Sengupta, "There was funereal silence in the ground as the result took a while to sink in. It was the first time England had been beaten at home – which sounds somewhat strange after all these years. When Ivo Bligh, who later became Lord Darnley, took the team to Australia in 1882-83, he was presented with a small terracotta urn by a group of Melbourne women.

The contents of the urn were long believed to be the ashes a burnt bail. However, in 1998, the 82-year old daughter in law of Lord Darnley claimed that it was not a bail, but the remains of her mother-in-law’s veil.

The urn now rests at the cricket museum of the Lord’s cricket ground." #CricketHistory #HistoryOfCricket #Ashes #AshesCricket #AshesInCricket #WGGrace #FredSpofforth #Australia #England #EnglandCricket #AustralianCricket #AshesHistory #HistoryOfAshes

Looking forward to reading this book; 'A History of Lords and Commons Cricket', which my father kindly gave to me after finding it tucked in amongst my grandfather's Hansards. #historyofcricket #lordsandcommonscricket #cricket #history #ericbullus #dedicatedto #lordebbisham #interwaryears #bladesera #houseoflords #houseofcommons #notforsale

Gambling and cricket have been closely linked since the 17th century . This was even before the official classification of the First Class game. Fascinating and in expected to say the least.

Test cricket turns 140 years old today. It was exactly on this day in 1877  that the first ever International test match was played between England and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket ground. It finished in a 45-run win for Australia.
