English cricket team in Australia in 1897–98

The England national cricket team toured Australia during the summer of 1897-98. The team was officially captained by Andrew Stoddart, but actually captained by Archie MacLaren for the first, second and fifth tests, and Stoddart for the third and fourth tests. Five test matches were played, with England winning the first test comfortably by nine wickets, only to lose the next four tests equally emphatically.

Stoddart's team played a total of 22 matches whilst on tour; nine against local teams, eight against state teams and five against Australia, contesting The Ashes.[1]
