The information available on this tour is still fairly sketchy. Crowds are obviously estimates, and aside from Test matches, obtaining details on squads and scorers is an ongoing process. Not all venues and referees are confirmed.



A cotton mills strike in the north of England was a contributing factor to small crowds.
