Rain caused play to be abandoned before mid-day on the first day. On the final day, so much rain fell before lunch that ordinarily the match would have been abandoned. Since Essex have been saved from all risk of defeat, it was agreed to have two hours play on a different pitch. Mead strained a thigh on the second afternoon and took no further part in the match. Kortright's 131, made out of 166, took 120 minutes and included 20 fours
