  • Australian Cricket Memorabilia – 5th Test the Oval

    Posted on August 22, 2013 by Selby


    The Oval is an inspiring cricket ground, the place where Len Hutton scored 364 runs against the Aussies in 1938 and Devon Malcolm took 9 wickets for 57 runs against South Africa in 1994, the ground where the first home Test match was played in 1880 an occasion when the legendary cricketer WG Grace scored a century securing victory for England.

    Ashes cricket memorabilia has been available throughout the first four matches of the series as is always the case with Ashes Collectables, in particular autographed cricket bats, sports autographs and signed press photographs

    I always enjoy the Oval especially the hospitality suite at the “Pavilion end,” Today was the day when Australia finally made a convincing fight back in the series from their position of  four matches played, a draw at Old Trafford,  a match that I think the tourists deserved to win and three wins for the home side.

    Australia having won the toss and electing to bat finished the day on 307/4, with number 3 bat Shane Watson contributing a magnificent 176 off a 113 deliveries. Watson’s innings was not without drama, he was hit on the head by a bouncer from Stuart Broad, Cook missed a slips catch when he was on 104 and he benefited from LBW decision having made 160.

    The England selectors must be pondering on their decision to leave  Steven Finn and Tremlett out of the side.

    Ashes memorabilia from the series will be listed in our online shop this weekend.
