The second and final Smokers v Non-Smokers match was played in Australia on March 17-21, 1887 at the East Melbourne Cricket Ground, a venue which saw only four first-class games in its history. The match was drawn, but was notable for the Non-Smokers' enormous first-innings total of 803. Arthur Shrewsbury made 236, Billy Gunn 150 and William Bruce 131 as the side piled up what at the time was a world record first-class total despite being a man short: Billy Barnes was absent hurt and unable to bat. In reply the Smokers started well and reached 267/2 thanks to Eugene Palmer's 113, but then collapsed to 356 all out with Billy Bates (who had failed with the bat, making just 4) taking 6-73. Following on, the Smokers had struggled to 135/5 when time ran out. William Scotton blocked the last ball of the match and picked it up with the intention of collecting it as a souvenir. The fielders appealed and Scotton was given out handled the ball.
