Do you know any of these women? ?The portrait is on display at Waikato Museum.

This portrait of an early Waikato women's cricket team is on display at Waikato Museum in The Perfect Pitch - A Waikato Cricket Story exhibition.

Stored for years in the attic at Northern Districts' headquarters, the identities of the women are a mystery, the photographer is unknown, as is the year the portrait was taken.

Records show women's teams were formed as early as 1913 in Hamilton and in 1919, the first women's cricket team played Waikato association cricket.

If you can help put a date or names to this historic team portrait, please email Waikato Museum communications manager Louise Belay at louise.belay@hcc.govt.nz.

The Perfect Pitch is at Waikato Museum until March 29.
