When J. A. Stevenson and A. V. Plowright became associated runs came freely and 77 runs were put on for the sixth wicket before Plowright was caught by H. Mudge. R. E. C. Butterworth took three wickets in seven deliveries for no runs to round-off the innings , making his analysis five for 21. Plowright's 47 was an exhibition of beautiful batting, and the innings closed for 168.
Sir Julien Cahn's XI had made 112 for the loss of only two wickets when stumps were drawn.
