The Magnificent Eleven Do It By 36 Wonderful Runs

A few minutes before four o’clock yesterday the small boys waiting on the boundary swarmed across the St Helen’s cricket ground at Swansea. Glamorgan had defeated the Australians for the first time in their history – by 36 runs – and had become the first side to beat the visitors in their 1964 tour. The crowd gathered round the pavilion and solemnly sang the national anthem in thanks for a great victory.
