It's a funny old game!

Cricket is as much a part of the Australian summer as backyard barbecues and sunburn.

The earliest test cricket footage held by the NFSA dates back to 1910. The 'Golden Age of Cricket' is often considered to be before the First World War but it was between the wars that cricket produced the greatest batsman of all time – Donald Bradman, who features in this collection.

The women's game is also well represented here. You'll discover some rare footage of the pioneering players from the 1930s, Ashes and World Cup teams from the late 1980s, along with the more recent 21st century superstars of women's T20 and One Day cricket.
