On the first day the game was marred when the crowd rebelled against the Australian batsmen for slow scoring. The crowd of 10,000 which had grown restless in the morning, finally boiled over in the afternoon, particularly at the batting of Darling. Ironic cheering when a run was scored, was followed at one point by the crowd whistling 'Dead March in Saul'. Other musical compositions followed including 'Poor Old Joe' and 'We won't go home till morning', interspersed with remarks of a personal nature. Darling attributed his slowness to a painfully bruised heel. Darling's innings lasted for 270 minutes and he hit 18 fours. Iredale batted for 195 minutes and included 17 fours.
