Sussex Plays South Africa at Hove 1967

3 mins United Kingdom

This interesting film shows a cricket match between Sussex County Cricket Club and the visiting team from South Africa. We see the captains of both teams on the pitch tossing a coin for the innings. Players exit the pavilion and walk onto the pitch where play commences. During breaks in play many of the players, as well as other cricketing celebrities, are surrounded by packs of autograph hunters. Play then resumes.
