ASHES STORY - STICKY WICKET TURNAROUND, 1894

Before these historic images were captured, the first Test match of the series (1894) is remembered as being the first Test match in cricketing history where a team was forced to follow on. No Ashes Test has had a bigger reversal of fortunes than the one played at the SCG in December 1894. Having made England follow on, Australia was two for 113 at stumps on day five, needing just 64 to win. But it rained that night, and on a gluepot the next day Australia lost eight wickets for 53. Spinner, Bobby Peel, took six wickets in England's victory. On bottom left of top image reads, 'FOURTH TEST MATCH - STODDART'S ENGLISH TEAM V. AUSTRALIA - WON BY AUSTRALIA BY 1 INNINGS AND 55 RUNS - SYDNEY ASSOCIATION GROUND FEB 1895'.
