Match Notes


General
    • England Captain not named
    • England Wicket-keeper not named
    • Kent XI Captain not named
    • Kent XI Wicket-keeper not named
    • England 1st innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • Kent XI 1st innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • England 2nd innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • Kent XI 2nd innings: bowlers' runs conceded do not balance
    • John Small, sen's son Eli has been suggested as a candidate for 'Small' in the Kent team, but there is no evidence for this.
    • KCM gives the dates as 22-24 July, presumably because the newspaper that carries the match report is dated 29 July. But the newspaper is dated by the first day of the period it covers, not the date of publication; moreover, 22-24 July would create a clash with the previous match. 29-31 July must be correct.
