Pink Gins & Googlies: Tour Match Perth – Cranford old girls v Gold Diggers XI

After the loss of Madge the Cranford old girls take to the pitch in low spirits to face a local team of hardy miner’s wives and sweethearts from the outback.

The locals win the toss and elect to bat. They make efficient if not starling progress and are helped by extras from unusually sloppy bowling by the rattled visitors. They make 161-4

When Cranford take to the field they make initial progress Aunt Agatha being very impatient with flashy fours being struck. However at the other end there is a collapse till Larwood and the Countess Lemichello try to stop the rot before being replaced by ‘rabbits’ Lady Bouchet and Tremoux who last till stumps but see the visitors make only 134 runs.

The Gold Diggers XI win by 27 runs a loss for tour girls !
