    • At close of play on 25 July (a Saturday), Leigh's XI, with seven wickets in hand, required an additional 36 runs to win. Normal practice at the time would have been to continue at the earliest opportunity, and it was announced that the game would resume on 17 August. In the event, this did not take place and it was not until eleven months later, on 28 June 1796, that the match was brought to a conclusion. In these unique circumstances the batting and bowling in Leigh (2) are presented so as to show the position both at the close of play on 25 July 1795 and at the conclusion of the match in 1796.
    • Frederick Reynolds, who was a well-known dramatist, made his first appearance in 'great' matches, apparently as a last-minute substitute for a player taken ill. In his memoirs, published 1827, he recalled the game. 'I, for the first and last time, played against the celebrated formidable, Harris. In taking my place at the wicket, I almost felt as if I was taking my ground in a duel, and my terrors were so much increased by the mock sympathy of Hammond, Beldham and others round the wicket that when this mighty bowler, this Jupiter tonans, hurled his bolt at me, I shut my eyes in the intensity of my panic, and mechnically gave a random desperate blow, which, to my utter astonishment, was followed by a loud cry all over the ring of "Run, run". I did run; and with all my force; and getting three notches.' This vivid account, the details of which are supported by the score, tells us that Hammond was still batting when Reynolds arrived at the crease; also, that 'sledging' is no new phenomenon.
