Cricket in Shillong, after the 1897 Earthquake (click to enlarge)

© Roger Bilham 2007

Cricket was suspended for a month after the earthquake by the Resident, Mr. Cotton, in deference to the loss of life. The decision was not popular and was rescinded. The wooden cricket pavillion was used as a temporary refuge by residents who lost their homes in the earthquake.
