MCC finished their tour of Argentina with a win against the national side. Although they failed to bowl Argentina out twice, they won by virtue of a first-innings lead. MCC batted almost all the first day of the two-day game in scoring 378 for 9, built on fifties from Peter Trego, Martin George and Martin O’Reilly. Argentina batted slowly on the second day in making 223, but they had Paul Ferguson’s 60 to thank for bailing them out from 78 for 7. They reached 63 for 1 in their follow on.
MCC 378 for 9 (Trego 65, George 54, O’Reilly 53) beat Argentina 223 (Ferguson 60, Trego 5-76) and 63 for 1 on first innings.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
