Am I the only one who doesn't understand cricket? I do like the whites they wear though. (not my photo)

I wanted to share this family photo of John Blackham with the community. Location: unknown. Date: unknown.

I guess I didn't realize that cricket went back to 1890. And here I am looking at the National Champions.

They are very relaxed and look satisfied with themselves. Well, I guess they should be. They are the Champions. What an ornate background that is also.

And I would love to know who the guy is in the black and white striped top?  

I have to say that I love the three hats on the men in the back row.

What a great picture.

Thank you for sharing, Deb.

I have never understood cricket! But I guess that is what folks across the Pond think about baseball.

I imagine baseball could be pretty complicated for someone who was not familiar with it.
It was a lot easier to understand in the 60s than now.
