  • Description

    The fourth day of the first Test match proved the last, for it took England a little over the two-and-a-half hours to dismiss the six New Zealand batsman remaining. The Tourist's second innings total of 137 left England the winners by 205 runs.

    First blow of the day at Edgbaston was unfortunately to the nose of batsman Harford, who had opened the day with skipper Reid. He seemed to sway into the path of a bumper from fast bowler Trueman, received the ball in his face and was escorted off the field by May and Lock.

    When Reid was bowled by Bailey the New Zealanders quickly fell. Harford returned but was soon caught and Cowdrey made a brilliant catch, diving to his right in the slips, to dismiss MacGibbon.

    Loader and Lock took three wickets each in the final innings. Scores: England, 221 and 215 for 6 dec; New Zealand, 94 and 137.
