The Australian Imperial Forces (AIF) cricket team toured England between May and September 1919, playing 28 first-class matches after the First World War. Its overall record was 12 wins, 4 losses and 12 draws. Five minor matches were also played, in Scotland, Durham and against Mitcham in Surrey (the oldest club in the world), the Australians winning two and drawing three.
The team then travelled to South Africa, where it went undefeated in ten matches, eight of which were first-class. Two unofficial "Tests" were played at Johannesburg, Australia winning both comfortably. Finally, the AIF team toured Australia and played state teams before disbanding in February 1920. The captain was NSW player Herbie Collins, who in November 1919 made 235 (out of 441) in the win over South Africa. He later captained the Australian Test team.
