This match was a benefit match for W.Flowers. Unfortunately for him the first day, Whit-Monday, was washed out and when play eventually began the match was completed in just 185 minutes. The shortest completed first-class match but a disaster for the beneficiary. Hearne took 3 wickets in 4 balls in the first innings and Trott took 3 wickets in his first over of the second innings.
