--> The match was scheduled for three days but completed in two.

Two and a half hours were lost to rain on the second day. The net system was in use during this match. Gunn bowled unchanged in both innings
The net system: a net three feet high was placed around the playing area to form a boundary. The object of the experiment was to discourage boundary hitting. Therefore hits over the net counted only 3. Any hit that did not go over the net was to be run out and two additional runs allowed if the ball reached the net
A special meeting of the Marylebone Cricket Club on May 2nd confirmed the following alterations to the laws of the game which came into force at once: (a) six balls to constitute an over; (b) declaration permissable at or after the luncheon interval on the second day; (c) the side which leads by 150 runs in a three-day match, by 100 runs in a two-day match, and by 75 runs in a one-day match shall have the option of calling on the other side to follow its innings
