This is the first women's Test Match ever to be played in this country, but three matches have been played in Australia, England winning two and the third being drawn. England will be captained by Miss Molly Hide, who was a member of the England team that went to Australia in 1934, while Australia will be captained by Mrs. Margaret Peden. The umpires will be women - Miss K. Doman and Miss P. Drake. The game should last three days. Miss Marjorie Pollard , who will give the commentary today and on Monday and Tuesday, June 14 and 15, at 1.15 p.m., must be one of the best-known women cricketers in England.

A commentary during the early stages of the race by F. J. FINDON from Donington Park
The race for the Nuffield Trophy starts at about 3.45 p.m. and should finish about 6.25-the broadcast therefore will cover the early stages of the race, which has become established as one of the classics at Donington. The distance is 155 miles, equal to sixty laps of the circuit. There will be at least three E.R.A.'s. driven respectively by Raymond Mays , Pat Fairfield, and D. Scribbans. Charles Goodacre , who set up a record by winning every one of the four races held on Coronation day on this course, and Mrs. Petre and H. L. Hadley will all drive Austins. T. C. Harrison and H. L. Brook will steer Rileys, and a very interesting entry is that of Count Lurani's Maserati, which will be handled by Villerosi.
