Surrey take on Yorkshire against an atmospheric background in this short newsreel, the gas holder looming large and the ghostly image of the Victoria Tower rising in the far distance. This snapshot of the County Championship match at the Oval features a single shot from Jack Hobbs and four rather leisurely runs. Hobbs reached a milestone in this three-day match: 2,000 runs in first-class cricket.
