12th man for the Players was W Rhodes, who also fielded as a substitute for the Gentlemen
With confusion over the time of stumps most thought that Kortright and Grace had saved the match when 6:30 pm was reached with the Gentlemen at 130/9. Play however was scheduled to continue for a further 30 minutes.
