England in Australia 1901/2[edit]

This was the last privately run England tour of Australia. The Melbourne Cricket Club invited MCC to send a side, but they declined. Archie MacLaren was therefore invited instead, and accepted. George Hirst, Wilfred Rhodes, KS Ranjitsinjhi, Stanley Jackson and CB Fry were not available. Maclaren's great coup was to select Sydney Barnes, who had been playing in the Lancashire League and had played only a handful of games for Lancashire.[1]:82

Match length: Timeless. Balls per over: 6. Series result: Australia won 4–1.
