A new trophy, to be awarded to the winners of the Ashes series, has been commissioned by the Marylebone Cricket Club. It is a replica of the original urn, which remains at Lord's.
Defeat by an Eastern Province XI yesterday left West Indies without a win after five matches of their South African tour. The Eastern Province XI won on a faster run-rate after rain had restricted the West Indies innings to 46 overs and then forced a premature finish after the home side had batted for 38.1 overs. A third-wicket partnership of 118 between Graham Grace and Justin Kemp swung the match the Eastern Province XI's way. Grace's 70 was struck off 109 balls with five fours and a six while Kemp hammered his 64 off 63 balls with two fours and five sixes. The West Indies relied on Philo Wallace (56 off 64 balls) and Floyd Reifer (93 off 100 deliveries) to post a reasonable total.
