It was the biggest cricket match of the summer today, August 22, 2019, as The Authors took on their oldest rivals, The Actors at Eton College.

Over the past eight seasons The Authors have played cricket teams of priests, publishers, soldiers, lawyers, bankers, tea planters and prison guards but they could not score a ‘W’ against their chief rivalry The Actors.

Damian’s team scored a victory today as The Authors lost to The Actors by 39 runs, ending a five year losing streak. Cheers to Damian’s team, The Actors!

Sponsored by Rathbones, the match was umpired by John Betts and scored by Peter Harding. Stars of both screen and page participated in the match, including:

The Actors: Team Captain Damian Lewis, Nick Asbury, Ant Jardine, Nathan Lee, Lachlan Nieboer, Julian Ovenden, Geoff Streatfeild, William Troughton, Dan Tuite, Ben Willbond, and James Wrighton.
