Sketches of Cricket in India, 1890

A series of sketches by an English Cavalry Officer of a game of cricket played between an Indian College and British Officers, in India, 1890. The correspondent who sent in the account of this match wished to remain anonymous and gave little in the way of details about the match. Indeed the Indian College was given the pseudonym 'The Progress College of Arts and Sciences' and the location was not disclosed. The Illustrated London News editor who wrote the original caption said there was a 'touch of caricature' in their depiction of the Indian players, but hoped 'the joke would be taken in a good-humoured spirit, as it is meant'.
