, : Symbols of unity: Anglo-Australian cricketers, 1877-1900. International Journal of the History of Sport 7(1): 97-110

The article describes the role played by cricket in consolidating the British empire. It focuses particularly on Australia during the period 1877-1900. The ideology of cricket proved a powerful construct cementing the cultural bond of the empire and had a number of practical dimensions in which the ideals were given tangible form. Regular English tours to Australia did much to enhance interest in the game, and, in the early years, to improve the skills of colonial sides.
