M.C.C. and Ground v. Minor Counties

The Western Daily Press (19 june 1901, p. 7)

When this match was resumed at Lord's yesterday, the Minor Counties were 173 runs on with three wickets to fall. The innings finally closed for 367. The home club fared much better in their second venture. Hulls and Atfield hit up 51 for the first wicket in an hour, but the success did not continue, and with the dismissal of Murrell, who played well for his runs, five wickets were down for 122, and the Marylebone club still required 96 to save the innings' defeat. When Martin went in for the last wicket the Marylebone club were still 11 behind the Counties. The innings' defeat, however, was saved, for Bevington and Martin scored freely. The Marylebone Club were all out for 237, and the Minor Counties went in for the last time to make 20 runs to win. These were scored without loss, and the Minor Counties won by ten wickets. Scored:—
