5th Test Match - England v Australia
A police escort for the England captain, the Honorable Lord Lionel Hallam Tennyson, as he walks out to inspect the wicket after a lengthy rain relay on the first day of the 5th Test match between England and Australia at the Kennington Oval in London, 13th August 1921. The Australian captain, Warwick Armstrong, refused to inspect the ground after a large crowd gathered in front of the pavilion to protest that play had not re-started sooner. As a result of too much time being lost to the weather the match ended in a draw. (Photo by Popperfoto via Getty Images/Getty Images)
