Estimate: £200/300
For the first time in several years, the captaincy remained unchanged for successive major tours. The tour selection was criticised, too many fast bowlers and not enough batsman, the selection of Denness as captain and the non selection of Jon Snow. In addition Boycott withdrew stating he was not fit enough mentally to return to Test cricket. Not good omens for the tour and it proved to be the case. England were destroyed by Lillee and Thomson and lost the series 4-0 with one Test drawn. Denness stood down from the captaincy and from playing due to lack of form just prior to the start of the fourth Test and John Edrich took over for this match. Denness returned to the captaincy in the firth Test which was lost but against all the odds in the sixth Test, England beat Australia by an innings and four runs with Denness scoring 188.
