--> N Mann made his debut in first-class matches
--> W Barber made his last appearance in first-class matches
--> Earl of Tankerville (2) passed his previous highest score of 35 in first-class matches
--> C Phillips (2) passed his previous highest score of 14 in first-class matches
--> T Taylor (2) passed his previous highest score of 42 in first-class matches
--> C Phillips made his debut for England in first-class matches

The Dorset papers at the Kent Archive Office, Maidstone, give a full score with additional information, attributing blame for run-outs (Miller (1) - Minchin's fault; Bowra (2) - Tankerville's fault) which, apart from being interesting in itself, gives valuable information about who was batting in partnership. The Dorset papers also tell us that Wood (2) was 'thrown out by Brett', which is assumed to mean run out, and that Aylward (2) and Barber (2) were out first ball. These details tend to increase confidence in the general reliability of the score, besides adding colour and interest. One can almost sense the delight of England's backers when Stevens removed the dangerous Aylward first ball.
