    • A dispute arose after the umpires had tossed, Victoria winning. The New South Wales players insisted that, as the visiting team, they had the choice; Victoria eventually relented and were sent in.

    • No boundaries were in operation for this match.

    • Elliott dismissed Murray with the first ball of the visitors' innings to claim a wicket with his first ball in First Class Cricket.

    • Kington kept wicket in the second innings.

    • New South Wales Wicket-keeper not named (various fielders back-stopping, minus protective equipment)
