--> Bowling in the Winchester College second innings adds 1 run over

Ground heavy and in bad condition from late rains. Friday being dull and showers, though Saturday was fine overhead. In another account in the second innings of Eton Wells-Cole bowled 3, Talbot 2, and Thring and Stobart 1 wide each. This was the fiftieth match between the two schools.
The analysis of bowling was somewhat different in another account, but the above is most probably the correct version and summary of that important and much neglected part of the records of our "national pastime".
