Thomas Case died near Dublin on November 10, in his seventieth year. In his third year in the Winchester XI, when captain, he scored 61 and 31 against Eton, going in first and literally leading his side to victory by 114 runs. Because of an accident to the Hon. F. J. N. Thesiger, Case completed the Oxford XI in 1891, when Cambridge won by two wickets; next year he was not out with Lionel Palairet, whose 71 was largely responsible for Oxford's victory by five wickets. M. R. Jardine did still more towards the triumph, making 140 and 39. Case scored 29 on the first day, giving useful help to Jardine and V. T. Hill. The match aroused great interest. The aggregate runs, 1,100, far exceeded any previous scoring in the University encounter; Jardine's 179 runs beat the total credited to any batsman hitherto; Cambridge in their follow-on equalled the record total of 388 made in 1872 by the Light Blues, and E. C. Streatfeild hit the third century in the match. Also J. B. Wood, a lob bowler, opened the Oxford attack and, with seven wickets in the two Cambridge innings, was surpassed in this game only by F. S. Jackson, who took eight Oxford wickets.
