Boxing Day Test

December 26, 2013 by  

Boxing Day Test, A monstrous crowd of 91,092 people turned up to day one of the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, breaking a world record which had stood for 52 years.

Thursday’s play was not the most entertaining of the series but spectators continued to file through the gates until late in the day.

The previous record for a day of cricket of 90,800 was set on day two of the fifth Test of the 1960/61 series between Australia and the West Indies – also at the MCG.

During that series, the West Indies had developed a large following around the country thanks to the exciting style of play employed by the Frank Worrell-led side.

Some crowds in Calcutta have been rumoured to be larger but no official attendance records are kept.
