Match notes
  • General
  • Abel scored the first hundred in first-class cricket in South Africa and Tancred became the first batsman to carry his bat through a completed Test innings.
  • Briggs set a new Test record by taking 8 for 11 (all bowled) in the second innings and 15 for 28 in the match.
  • Ashley took 7 for 95 in his only Test
  • Bowden, aged 23 years 144 days became England's youngest captain three years before dying in Umtali Hospital- a glorified mud hut where his body had to be protected from marauding lions prior to being interred in a coffin made from whiskey cases.
