Lord's Ground. England v. Australia. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, June 22, 23, 24, 1896. Printed scorecard, complete apart from details of England's short second innings on the final day, 152 x 114mm.

Although England won the first Test by four wickets, the game was closely contested and perhaps most notable for the disparity between Australia's first innings score of 53 and their second innings total of 347. The penny scorecard records W.G. Grace's 66, F.S. Jackson's 44, and Abel's 94 for England, surpassed by G.H.S. Trott's 143 and S.E. Gregory's 103 in their second innings for Australia. 'Both played superbly, their cricket leaving no room whatever for adverse criticism' (Wisden).
