--> Bowling in the Gentlemen of Worcestershire second innings adds 2 runs under

Haygarth states the scorebook showed only A.Lyttelton and therefore could have been either Alfred or Arthur. Haygarth goes for the former, but it is not absolutely certain as it seems he didn't keep wicket!!!
Walker's analysis in the second innings gave only 3 runs conceeded, but as the score is 20 runs short I assume it would have been him, as he bowled 14 overs
