Covers on! Rain Cancels Boxing Day Cricket...1924


Here's a photo of the M.C.C. Wicket, Boxing Day, 1926. No test match, a Sheffield Shield fixture. Originally published in the Argus Monday 29th December, 1924.


Protected by a tarpaulin during the soaking rains of Boxing Day the wicket on the M.CC. ground was nearly dry enough for play in the Sheffield match between Victoria and New South Wales on Saturday, but the Test match wicket (on the left) and surrounding ground were in such a condition that it was decided to postpone the interstate fixture indefinitely.
