--> T Sueter (1) passed 1500 runs in first-class matches when he reached 40

Hampshire had Stevens as a given man; Kent had Bedster and Yalden. This is the first tie in a 'great' match. Hambledon Cricket Chronicle notes that 'Lumpy [Stevens] went in last with three needed'. SB quotes a report that 'the game was saved by Clifford's attention', presumably by bowling Francis and catching Purchase near the death.
SB and many other sources have the teams reversed but the quotes above about Stevens and Clifford make sense only if Hampshire batted last. SB also quotes a report that Kent actually won, a run having been missed through a scoring error; but this account is suspect because it is supported by details about tally-sticks, which had long since fallen out of use by this time.
