Norfolk won this return match by 45 runs just a minute or two before time amid reported scenes of considerable excitement. The match at Norwich had also been won by Norfolk. Features of the game were two late wicket partnerships. Raikes and Shore put on 59 runs for the tenth wicket in the Norfolk second innings, a total larger than the margin of victory. In the Cambridgeshire second innings, Gray and Bryan added 75 runs for the ninth wicket. Hayward's 51 for Cambridgeshire was scored in two hours. On the first day a thunderstorm ended play early at around 6 pm. In the Cambridgeshire second innings, Fryer kept wicket for Norfolk when Blake bowled. The Cambridgeshire second innings total of 211 was the highest fourth innings total of the season.
