MATCH NOTES
General
  • Giffen was the first captain to give his opponents first innings on winning the toss.
  • Stoddart's innings was the highest in Test for England and the highest by an England captain until 1974-75 when MH Denness scored 188.
  • Coningham took Mclaren's wicket with his first ball in his only Test to claim the first instances of a wicket falling to the first ball of a Test match.
  • In England's second innings all eleven batsmen reached double figures for the first time in a Test match innings. Thanks Vishal, Travis
