Second Test match

England v Australia 1886-87

The Australian team was very far indeed from a representative one, the only Victorian player on the side being Midwinter. Jones, however, was the only prominent Sydney man who was away. Having the best of the play all through, the Englishmen won by 71 runs. Lohmann's fine bowling in the first innings, and Barlow's batting being the main elements of success. Turner and Ferris bowled admirably for the Australians, but their exertions were not sufficient to avert defeat.
