Notts face Surrey and Gloucester at Trent Bridge in the 1932 Cricket County Championship before playing the All-India side.

Amateur film 1932 15 mins Silent


It's Trent Bridge in the summer of 1932 and an amateur cameraman captures some lovely footage of Nottinghamshire Cricket Club taking on Surrey, Gloucestershire and the All-India touring side. Led by Douglas Jardine, Surrey face the bowling of Harold Larwood and Bill Voce, with the distinctive figure of Notts captain Arthur Carr in the slips. A relaxed looking Gloucestershire come out of the pavilion, ready to test the batting skills of Notts' openers Walter Keeton and Frank Shipston. The cameraman had a good vantage point, and the film closes with some excellent footage of the pitch action at the All-India match.

Nottinghamshire drew against Surrey after rain stopped play on the third day, but won against Gloucester and the All-India team.
