Ranjitsinhji, although ill, emulated H Graham by scoring a hundred in his first Test in Australia having done so in England.
MacLaren, deputising for AE Stoddart whose mother had died, scored a hundred in his first Test as captain.
McLeod was run out by Storer when he left his crease after being bowled by a no-ball. His deafness prevented him from hearing the umpire's call.
