--> Bowling in the Philadelphia second innings adds 1 run under

The Candadians arrived late, due to an 18 hour delay in Pennsylvania, and were unprepared to play a match. Nesbit Wallace, the captain of the British Officers team, offered to play the Philadelphians first, but the Americans insisted on sticking to the agreed programme. The Canadians were therefore unable to acquit themselves satisfactorily.
