Source notes "A Single wicket match. Let it be remembered that in this match the Four could make runs in any direction, and the Eleven in front of the wicket only. Many letters appeared in the sporting papers about the advantage each side had over the other as to the way the runs had to be obtained, some arguing one way and some the other. Blamires got 17 wickets including nine in the second innings of his opponents.
Weather pleasant but ground heavy from late rains. Single wicket matches now extremely rare and very uninteresting."
Extras batsman has been added to each innings to show the runner with the final batsman.
