Synopsis This is a remarkably detailed account of this momentous tour of a party of 36 New Zealand bowlers and 20 ladies who set sail from New Zealand on 10 February 1928 and arrived back on 4 November, nearly nine months later. A total of 95 matches were played, of which 50 were won by the New Zealanders, 43 lost and two drawn.
