Curiously this cover commemorates the 'opening match' at Arundel 27 April however the Australian Centennial Tour officially began 30 April 1977 against Surrey at the Oval; they didn't meet Sussex until 07 May at Brighton.

Checking the archives I can't find details of a match played 27 April.

Matches at Arundel are usually against the Duke or Duchess of Norfolk's XI.

...and therefore not recognised as a first class fixture and generally not included in series records and archives.

Thanks Ian, I'll dig deeper and see if I can confirm the match details.

Strand Souvenir Cover prepared by David Kirby of the Strand Stamp Centre Frankston Victoria (now known as DK Sports), for the 3rd Test between Australia & the West Indies starting on 15th December 2000.

Australia won the match by 5 wickets & won the series by 5 - 0. Cover is signed by current Australian Coach, Darren Lehmann. He played 27 test matches between 1998 & 2004. However, I am not sure why he has signed this cover as he did not play in the match.

I was sorting out my envelopes and found a cover with the postmark celebrating bicentenary of Lord's cricket ground.

If any one needs the postmark for their collection just message me and I will be happy to send the cover to a more loving home.

Also reported in this month's Stamps in the News
https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=61066

High altitude cricket commemorated
Reported at https://www.myrepublica.com

Nepal Postal Service has issued a postage stamp to commemorate Nepal cricket team’s feat in the ICC World Twenty20.

Nepal for the first time made it to the finals of the World T20, held in Bangladesh. Nepal defeated Hong Kong and Afghanistan and lost to host Bangladesh in the group stage of the tournament.

The Postal Service also unveiled seven other postage stamps and four souvenir sheets. Minister for Information and Communications Minendra Rijal put cancellation marks on the postage stamps during a function organized by the Postal Service in the capital.

Minister Rijal said Nepal’s performance in the World Cup was a matter of national pride so the government decided to issue the stamps. The stamp, designed by Purna Kala Limbu of the Postal Service, has the image of national team captain Paras Khadka batting embossed on it. The Postal Service has printed one million copies of the stamp, costing two rupees each.

During the function, Paras said that making it to the World Cup was a beginning and the challenge is to repeat the feat in future. “The issuance of the stamps is an inspiration to the team,” he said.

Earlier, the Postal Service had issued a stamp of Nepali cricket when it won the ACC Premier League in 2006.

Here's the se-tenant strip of the 1977 Australian issue marking the Centenary Test between Australia and England, and the related 45c stamp for international postage, both on commercial cover. The strip is particularly hard to find commercially used.

Nice cover but this is not a genuine stamp nor postmark. I believe this is one of the concocted "local post" covers of the "Boys from Ballarat" for which there was no actual "local post service". They used to do the stamps fairs around Australia but now they are pretty much just selling on ebay. I believe at one time they were one of the biggest customers of Australia Post Philatelic Bureau.

Here is a typical example of the monthly newsletter from Alan Tunnicliffe, the Secretary of the Air Mail Society of NZ.

Postmarked on the day of NZ's one wicket win over Australia and cacheted to boot.

You can see the effort Alan goes to each time and these are my favourite articles to receive in the post.

Not only was the cover above featuring World Cup stamps sent from NZ to Australia on Australia v NZ Day, it arrived in Perth on England v Bangladesh Day (the day England’s cricket hopes died).

150 Years of Cricket in Tasmania ...1832-1982 (27/10/1982)

Cricket Tasmania History
Although little evidence has survived of Tasmania's early days, cricket was probably played on the island soon after its European settlement in 1803. Certainly by 1814, when the colony's chaplain Robert Knopwood noted in his diary the popularity of the game during the holiday period around Christmas, the game was well established as a pastime, although the extent of its organisation remains a doubtful quantity.

Tasmania produced some good players in the inter-War era, banking on a progressive policy of youth that allowed teenagers such as CL Badcock, RV Thomas and ROG Morrisby to play first-class cricket. Others such as AO Burrows, DC Green, SWL Putman, GTH James and GA Combes were selected in their early 20s, and usually gave a good account of themselves. Team selection was still hampered somewhat by the need to give the north and the south equal representation in the side, which was not therefore always the best that might have been selected.

A maxi-card for Australian Champion Cricketer, Victor Trumper & signed by stamp designer, Sydney Cartoonist, Tony Rafty:
Image
Victor Thomas Trumper (2 November 1877 – 28 June 1915) was an Australian cricketer known as the most stylish and versatile batsman of the Golden Age of cricket, capable of playing match-winning innings on wet wickets his contemporaries found unplayable. He played 48 tests, scored 3,163 runs at an average of 39.04, with a top score of 214 not out. In 255 first class matches he scored 16,939 runs at an average 44.57 & a top score of 300 not out.

Not only did he have to bat on (uncovered) wet pitches, the wickets were larger & the bats smaller than those used today.

It is said that his stamp was the 35c rate because that the airmail letter rate to New Zealand where he shared an 8 wicket of 433 with A Sims for an Australian XI against Canterbury at Christchurch, a record that still stands today.

I received this cover from Stampboarder "Girish Vaidya" produced for the final of "The Indian Premier League Cricket Tournament (IPL)" where Chennai was to play the Mumbai Indians. Girish advised that the 'Royal Challengers' Bengaluru had lost to Chennai in the semi-final & is spreading the green message, & is said to be the world's first carbon positive cricket team (as claimed by them on the reverse of the cover). The stadium in Bengaluru is using lights powered by solar panels for the day night matches & has full rain water harvesting facilities. They have released this special cover in association with India post, printed on recycled paper-

The cover features image of Virat Kohli, (India), Chris Gayle (West Indies) and A B De Villiers (South Africa) and stamp of Sachin Tendulkar with special cancellation.

Thanks Noel for that information on Victor; I'd been wondering if I should put up these images of his grave that I took a few years back when doing a project on Australia's Test cricketers who are no longer with us; I hope it is OK.

Trumper was one of the most revered cricketers to have ever played for Australia.

Bare statistics do not do him justice; uncovered wickets, minimal protective equipment, and in his case an attitude that the game was the thing, generally was not interested in accumulating huge scores: he certainly had the talent.

He is buried in Waverley Cemetery in Sydney. His grave is in front of the white cross (which is part of the grave behind Victor's)

Image

and the plaque

Image

One of the most scenic cemeteries in Australia, and has other Test cricketers Jack Fingleton, Hanson 'Sammy' Carter, HH Massie, EJ Gregory and AC 'Alick' Bannerman there too.

thanks

Certainly, I hid the listing in here so actual cricket collectors reading these threads might see it.

Email me your address and it will be on the way.

For some reason, there are no stamps affixed on this envelope.

This one was shown last year on the watercooler cricket thread. I made an offer for $35 as seller was asking for $70 and feel it was a fair price.

Before the Black Caps there was The Young Guns. The FDC was described as having 20 signatures and I've enjoyed matching them, all except one that Brad helped with.

Serendipitious too; brought for the cricket autographs and not 'til it arrived did I notice the first TEAL flying boat, the Aotearoa :). Funny how it celebrates the 1930s yet TEAL didn't begin until April 1940, though the first flying boat arrived in late '39.
