A fascinating album of photographs showing the first England cricket tour of India and the last for controversial 'Bodyline' captain Douglas Jardine has been discovered.<br />
<br />
The rare black and white images show the England star leading the national side at the new cricket ground in Delhi that the colonial British had built in 1933 - the same year as the brutal Ashes series.<br />
<br />
Jardine is featured in many photos as is the Viceroy of India. The album is being sold by auctioneers Bishop and Miller of Suffolk.
