Australia v England highlights since the inaugural 1877 Ashes Test in Melbourne:
Fred ''The Demon'' Spofforth, first in a long line of destructive Australian strike bowlers, bowls Australia to a seven-run victory in a one-off Test at the Oval.
The excitement is so intense that one spectator dies.
The Sporting Times declares that English cricket has also died and prints a mock obituary, saying its body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia.
