    • With the score at 13-3 in the Canada Second innings, Helliwell hit the ball in the air, and, thinking he could charge the bowler to prevent him from catching the ball, knocked Dudson to the ground. The latter, on recovering, ran and threw the ball at Helliwell. He was subdued by his team mates and apologised to the batsman, but the Canadians refused to continue the game.
    • Bell's Life stated that Canada had forfeited the match.
    • It was seven years before the fixture was resumed.
