The only play in this drawn match was during the morning of the first day.
A thunderstorm halted play before lunch and play was called off at 4.00 pm when it was clear no further play could take place.
On the second day, the pitch was drying well after overnight rain and it was hoped to start at 1.00 pm.
However, a further heavy thunderstorm at noon flooded the pitch and the match was abandoned.
There were 1 five and 2 fours in Silverlock's 41.
Some sources indicate Lloyd was the Monmouthshire captain for this match.
[In the Monmouthshire innings Devon sources have Stedman not batting but Monmouthshire sources have him as batting and this is supported by the published Monmouthshire averages.
[Missing: Initials of Roles.]
