Amazons at the Wicket 1925

United Kingdom

Mildly patronising title aside, this film shows that the women cricketers of Cobham Ladies could play a bit, enjoying what the caption writer calls a “keen and stylish game” against a men’s team called Manor Athletic. A female bowler is shown bowling full-pelt and there’s a close-up of a wicket-keeper taking a catch, followed by footage of the women’s team at the crease, slogging a couple of tidy shots to mid-on.
