Australia’s 1st Cricket Test Match

Australian Cricket

Did you know that Australia’s first cricket test match was played in Melbourne in March 1877 against England?

Australia managed to win by 45 runs with a score of 349 to England’s 304.

The highest score was achieved by Charles Bannerman – who opened for Australia - with 165 runs in the 1st Innings. This was also his career best.

Those were the days.
