Our thanks to Arthur Haygarth for collecting the information and to Roger Heavens for providing this scorecard which was first published in Arthur Haygarth's Cricket Scores and Biographies Volume 16.

A.W. Dorman bowled seven overs (5 balls in an over) and four balls (or 39 balls) for no runs and got seven wickets bowling throughout the innings, which reached 15 only, nine off the bat. It is still a greater curiosity that in the same match at the same ground in 1878, W.G. Wyld did a similar feat, bowling throughout the innings, getting seven wickets and no runs scored off him! G. Mumford of the M.C.C. did the same a few years back and a few others.
