Harrow at Lord’s

The annual cricket fixture between Harrow School and Eton College took place on Friday 12 May at Lord’s Cricket Ground, just a few weeks prior to the World Test Championship Final between India and Australia in London.

In front of a healthy crowd of school students, parents, Old Harrovians and Old Etonians, Harrow batted first and scored an impressive 275 in their 50 overs. The Eton response was strong but ultimately fell four runs short of the target, hence confirming a further Harrow victory in this fixture which first took place in 1805.

The Harrow team started their season with a tour of India in December and has since made a strong start to their English cricket season, with impressive victories over Wellington College and St Edward’s, Oxford prior to their annual visit to Lord’s.
