This match was drawn after the weather limited play to under fours hours. On the first day rain stopped play at 4.40 pm with the Surrey score 244-4 wickets. When play was resumed at 5.30, the remaining batsmen were dismissed in 25 minutes for 28 runs. On the second day shortly before the start there was a 'terrific downpour' which ceased at 12.30 and an early lunch was taken hoping to resume play in the afternoon. However, further rain fell during the interval and the match was abandoned at 2.40 pm when it was clear no further play was possible. For the home side, there were 1 six, 1 five and 10 fours in Spring's 68, scored in 40 minutes. For the visitors, Ashford took 7 wickets in the Surrey innings for 81 runs.
