USA Cricket History: English Tour of 1885 - Philadelphia defeats an English XI at home

English Tour of 1885 - Philadelphia defeats an English XI at home

By Venu Palaparthi - DreamCricket.com

The English XI led by Edward James Sanders left from Boston for their homeland on October 5th, 1885 feeling good about their many victories in the preceding month across USA. But the series was not all one-sided - in fact, the series marked yet another high-watermark for USA cricket, the Gentlemen of Philadelphia XI defeated the English XI by a wide margin in the first of two games they played.

The Philadelphians proved once and for all, if there were any doubters, that they were the best cricketers in America. They made 150 runs on average in each innings against the English bowling - a very strong performance by any standard. What was also interesting was that the Philadelphia team was all American-born amateurs whereas Boston and New York fielded some imported English born professionals. And the Philadelphians proved that they were level with the English born.





















As the amount of playing between the English and Americans increased in the 1880s, the American batsmen developed greater confidence when facing the English first class cricketers. And the British born professionals playing in USA also had a positive impact on the quality of the game played by the American cricketers. "They have learned how to play the game at the highest level," NY Times noted cheerfully adding that the Americans were learning from observing the British born among them. Of course, the previous year's tour of England also was a learning experience.

Handicapping of England's opponents was common but Americans wanted to wean themselves away from that practice. On this tour, although New England (comprising mostly Bostonians) and Peninsular (Detroit) fielded teams of fifteen against the English eleven, the other teams - Philadelphia, Staten Island and the All New York - all played eleven players.

As New York Times wrote, "Clearly, nobody expects a local team to challenge the formidable English eleven comprising their best batsmen from all over that motherland of cricket." However, Philadelphia proved that more could be achieved by just playing a good and strong eleven than a fifteen or an eighteen. "Firstly, the overfull field always leads to confusion when the players are fielding - each assuming that the other is going to catch it," NY Times wrote. Adding that, "In the end, spectators enjoy a fair and full display of the strengths of their best eleven than a perfectly matched up handicapped eighteen."

"Fielding too improved considerably. The Americans arranged the field so that every fielder was made familiar with the exact reliance placed on everyone on the field - every fielder was familiar with the others' strengths," Times observed.

Match Reports

The English tour was organized and led by Edward Sanders and his side featured several first class players from Oxford, Surrey, Sussex, MCC and Kent. The tour commenced with a two-day match on September 1, 1885 against Staten Island at the Staten Island Cricket Club ground (Livingston Field).

The Staten Islanders successfully played out for a draw - a historical first for Staten Island against an England first class outfit. After dismissing the English XI cheaply for just 91 runs, the Staten Islanders were bowled out for 62 giving England a 29 run lead. In their second innings, England reached 244 after a 93-run 7th wicket partnership between AR Cobb (48) and AE Newton (50). But if the Englishmen thought they could win this match easily, they were proved wrong. Staten Islanders held on remarkably for 47 overs losing just 3 wickets. They finished the day at 72 for 3 to draw the game. (Scorecard below).

The English XI played a two day match in Detroit that began September 5th against Peninsular Cricket Club where they handily beat the hosts (scorecard below). Following that victory, the English XI made their way back to the East Coast playing a three-day match against Gentlemen of Philadelphia at the Germantown Cricket Club ground on 17th, 18th and 19th of September 1885. This match was one for the history books as the Gentlemen of Philadelphia defeated the EJ Sanders Englishmen for 109 runs.

Batting first, the Philadelphians scored an impressive 200 on the first day thanks mainly to spectacular efforts including a career-high knock by EW Clark (42) and DS Newhall scoring 43 n.o. That set the stage for what was to be a remarkable contest. When it was their turn to bowl, WC Lowry bowled his heart out to get a five wicket haul (23.2 overs, 55 runs) helping to send England back to the pavilion for just 147 despite some good early scoring by the English opener AJ Thornton (55) and TR Hine Hancock (33). In their second innings, the Phildelphia side lost the openers without any resistance (34 for 3) but Robert Newhall (33) and EW Clark (30) put on 64 runs for the fourth wicket resurrecting their side from the bring of a collapse. In the end, Philadelphia posted a healthy 178 setting the Englishmen a target of 231 runs. Although AJ Thornton once again played a good knock (41) and RT Thornton contributed with a stubborn 31 at the fall of the fifth wicket, the Philadelphia bowlers were unrelenting (Charles Newhall and WC Lowry took 3 wickets each with David Newhall taking 4). In the end, EJ Sanders' Englishmen collapsed for 122, 109 shy of their target giving Philadelphia a well deserved win. (Scorecard below).

In the fourth match, a two-day contest played at Livingston, an All New York XI batted on a sticky wicket in the first innings and in rain and bad light throughout most of the second innings. But the English side restored their lost pride by winning convincingly by an innings and 125 runs. H Bruen inflicted heavy damage on New York in their first innings by getting a 7 wicket haul under miserable conditions. His 7 wickets came from 32.1 overs giving away just 25 runs. His spell included 15 maiden overs (they still played 4-ball overs on this tour). Although JL Pool bowled a 6 for 53 spell for All New York, the damage was done when AE Newton scored 129 for the English, taking his side to an unbeatable 267 in the process and deflating any remnant hopes of achieving a draw on the part of New York. (Scorecard below)

Returning to Germantown for their fifth game of the tour, EJ Sanders XI, it was payback time. In the three-day match, RT Thornton was in devastating form in both innings helping himself to scores of 43 n.o. in the first innings and 107 in the second surpassing his previous highest first-class score of 79 in the process. After scoring 193 in their first essay, the English bowlers sent the Philadelphia XI for 147 securing a lead of 46 runs. The lid came off in the second innings and the Englishmen scored a massive 317 in the second innings after the aforementioned century by RT Thornton. H Bruen confounded the Americans getting a 6 wicket haul as the Americans, chasing an impossible target of 363 runs, were bundled out for 120.

The Englishmen played a New England side in the final match at Longwood Cricket Club where the English side were behind in the first innings and turned it around only after some magnificent bowling and fielding in the second innings.

The overall tally in the series for the English side was 4 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw.
