Brief Description
Engraving of a cricket match being played on an open field, with spectators in the background. The viewpoint is from the bowler's end, looking down the wicket from an angle.

The names of the artist and engraver are printed just under the image, and below that the title, "THE GAME OF CRICKET". The print was published in "June 1843, for the Proprietor of the Sporting Review, by J. Mitchell, Old Bond Street / And at 76 Fleet Street". Written verso in ball point pen "Line engraving by E.
