From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

First-class match. Arthur Conan Doyle's team (M.C.C.) won by 5 wickets.


M.C.C. and Ground v. Derbyshire

Played at Lord's on May 13, 14 and 15.

M.C.C. won by five wickets.

On the first day twenty wickets fell for 218 runs, the County somewhat unexpectedly obtaining a lead of 8 on the first innings. The County lost half their wickets for 41, and it was only a good display by Morton which pulled the side round. Trott went on with the score five for 62, and in his second over sent back Hunter, Cooper and Warren. Eight wickets were then down for 66, following which Morton and Bracey, a left-hander, remained together fifty-five minutes, in which time they put on 47. Trott came through with the capital analysis of five for 21, and thoroughly deserved his success. The wicket had improved somewhat by the time the home side went in, but they made so bad a start that half the wickets fell for 31 against Warren and Bracey. Baker and Doyle remained together three-quarters of an hour, adding 41, and Major Barnes, who batted an hour for 3 not out, was in for forty-five minutes before making a run. With the close of the Marylebone innings play ended for the day. No play was possible on Tuesday owing to the state of the ground after very heavy rain. On a soft wicket yesterday Derbyshire lost Ollivierre, Wright, and Buckston for 5, but Cadman and Humphries stayed and put on 56 together — a most invaluable partnership. Hunter afterwards made a few good strokes, but the M.C.C. were set only 116 to win. Tarrant was quickly out, after which Tancred and Braund hit well, and took the total to 63 ere a separation was effected. Trott hit 28 out of 37, and practically put the result beyond doubt. The M.C.C. won by five wickets. Score and analysis:—
