--> JC Mitchell made his last appearance in first-class matches
--> RW Hanley reached 200 wickets in first-class matches when taking his 3rd wicket in the Rhodesia first innings

The umpires instructed the scorers to record Fotheringham as retired out. He walked for a catch to Mitchell at slip that the umpires had given not out as they were unable to see if the ball carried or not.
