This match was drawn after an improved batting performance from Durham in their second innings. The Durham second innings saw scores of 139 from Adamson, containing 17 fours, 4 threes and 11 twos and lasting 3 hours and 50 minutes, 85 by Simpson, including 1 five and 10 fours, and 61 by Mallett, including 10 fours. Mallett and Adamson put on 113 runs for the first wicket, and Adamson and Simpson 148 for the fourth. The latter was a new record for that wicket for the competition, exceeding the 127 added by A Hollowood and W E Harrison for Staffordshire in their first innings versus Northumberland at Heaton in 1896. It was to be exceeded later in the season when Oxfordshire played Berkshire at Oxford. For Northamptonshire, H E Kingston batted for 210 minutes in scoring 81, with 7 fours, and his brother W H Kingston scored 53, with 4 fours. Gowland was absent on the second day, having been called home because his mother was seriously ill.
