All but two of the England team either already had, or would later gain, Test caps, and the other two (Eddie Phillipson and Jack Davies) would play over 150 first-class matches apiece, but the Dominions side was far more uneven in this regard. Such luminaries as Learie Constantine (captaining the team in his final first-class match) and Keith Miller rubbed shoulders with the likes of Hartley Craig for whom this was his only first-class game.
The Dominions won the toss and batted, and Donnelly's 133 helped them to 307 all out; Wright took 5-90. England's reply started badly as they fell to 96/6, but a stand of 177 between captain Hammond (121) and Edrich (78) saw them to 287. In their second innings, the Dominions' total of 336 was massively helped by Miller's 185; Wright claimed 5-105. Chasing 357 to win, 102 from Hammond and 56 from Davies were not enough and they were dismissed for 311; the Dominions thus won by 45 runs.
