This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
Bedfordshire won this return match by six wickets at 5.45 pm on the second day, having required 108 runs for victory with just under 2 hours of play remaining. The match between the two sides at Luton at the beginning of the month had also been won by Bedfordshire. For the winners, there were 11 fours in Peel's 84. For the losers, Collier scored 63 which
included 9 fours and Ling
50 and C H Pigg 50. Cambridgeshire were handicapped by Coulson falling ill, which affected his bowling and led to him batting last in the Cambridgeshire second innings.
