A brief snippet of the 1921 Australian touring team's opening match against Leicestershire at Aylestone Road, which took place between 30 April and 2 May 1921. A packed ground watches play in progress, while passengers on the passing omnibuses also get a good view. The Australians came with a strong batting lineup and did not disappoint, racking up 430 runs in the first innings - the first match in a very successful tour for the Australians.
