Notes
--> GE Palmer completed a hat-trick in the Otago first innings (Cooke, Rattray, Clark)

According to a newspaper report the Australians were considerably disadvantage by Mr Atack (who was their umpire) giving every lbw and runout decision against them -- more so as the batsmen in most cases thought they were not out.
