  • The first five-match rubber in England began with the first Test ever staged at Nottingham.
  • WG Grace, playing his last Test was 50 years and 320 days old when the match ended; only W Rhodes played Test cricket at a greater age, and by coincidence, he was making his debut in Grace's last match.
