Thirteen of the local team were put on to bowl against the tourists. Ballarat were one man short in their second innings and Wisden calls the side the "Twenty-one of Ballarat". Lewis it was stated was only 14 or 15 years of age in another account. The wickets were exceedingly good and the ground perfect for cricket, the only fault being that it is a trifle small. [Unfortunately Haygarth gives two slightly different lists of analyses for the number of balls bowled by the England team but it is thought the above is correct.]
Also on their way home the Gentlemen of England played two matches (mixed teams) at Christchurch, New Zealand and another at New York.
