Test when Shortest completed innings record was made
The first Test match, along with the surprising loss against Lancashire at Old Trafford, strongly indicated that the South African team had little chance of defeating England. Despite a valiant effort to salvage a lost game, their heavy collapse for a score of 30 without any excuse from the wicket conditions further damaged their reputation. Based on the performance shown so far, the England team could only have been improved by playing Strudwick as wicket keeper instead of George Wood. The final spot on the team was a toss-up between A.P.F. Chapman and Ernest Tyldesley, with Chapman ultimately being selected. Due to heavy rainfall in Birmingham, South Africa’s Taylor chose to put England in after winning the toss.
