Match notes
  • General
  • 12th Men: JW Martin (Australia) and LR Gibbs (West Indies)
  • Davidson was the first man to complete the match double of 100 runs and 10 wickets in a Test match.
  • The partnership of 134 for the seventh wicket, in the second innings, was a record for Australia against the West Indies for that wicket.
