A rare video of India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru playing cricket with Members of Parliament went viral on Twitter on Thursday.

The video, which carries the stamp of Movietone News—an erstwhile newsreel company that operated in UK as well as the US—shows a charity match in New Delhi between Lok Sabha team that Nehru led and the Rajya Sabha.

The video says Nehru’s team, which batted first, made 222/3. Nehru made one run in the second innings before he declared himself “morally out”.

The match eventually ended in a draw.
