Sussex vs The West Indies at Hove 1963

13 mins United Kingdom

Sussex takes on the West Indies and other teams, in this fascinating film from 1963. We begin with cricket action at the county ground in Hove. Slow-motion filming captures bowling and fielding. The touring West Indies Cricket team arrives to play Sussex. After a pitch inspection by both captains the players emerge from the pavilion and an exciting day of cricket action begins. Two further Sussex matches are seen - all before large crowds of appreciative spectators.
