From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

The result was a draw.

Green Jackets v. Hampshire Rovers

This two days' fixture was commenced at St. Cross on Monday, and was limited to the first day's play (hence a drawn game) on account of the continual downpour of rain on Tuesday. The Rovers first went to the wickets, and two of their representatives were got rid of without a run being registered, but subsequently the fine batting of Capt. Barton (who played a brilliant innings of 101), G. F. Gerds, Major Bethune, and W. Hynes, with a good share of "extras," aided by the dropping of catches and loose fielding, enabled them to run up a score of 261 ere the innings terminated, and when the stumps were drawn the state of the game was as follows:—
