Although Wisden and The Cricketer magazine both record this match as a draw, the intention may have been for a single innings match over two days, eg The Chelmsford Chronicle reported "in a second knock - not affecting the result of the game - New Zealand made 160 for the loss of five wickets".
Various newspapers recorded the result as New Zealand Services winning by 66 runs.
