Match Notes


General
    • Australia were unable to to avoid following-on, the compulsory margin in 1888 being 80 runs.
    • The match ended at 1.52pm (before lunch on the second day), after Australia had been bowled out in 69 minutes.
    • Heavy rain before the match produced a soft, wet pitch and gave the side batting first an enormous advantage. A hot, drying sun on the second day made the pitch a vicious "sticky"; 18 wickets fell before lunch.
