W.W. Read's team were unbeaten on the tour of South Africa, winning fourteen matches including 'The Test Match' and drawing seven. They were far too strong, particularly in bowling, for the opposition it met, J.T. Hearne and Martin captured over 100 wickets each... It seems unrealistic that the only match played on equal terms is now described as a Test match. For one thing, two Australian Test cricketers, Ferris and Murdoch, as county players became members of the touring party, but went on to represent England. At the end of the tour the captain, Walter Read and manager, Edwin Ash were arrested until they provided security to cover a loan of £1000 which had been advanced by a Cape Colony businessman to cover expenses not met by the gates. There was just time for them to be ferried to the ship before it departed....

This 'Test match' game is more interesting for the following historical oddities,

William Murdoch and Ferris, who had both previously played for Australia, played for England due to residence, Frank Hearne, who played for South Africa in this game, had previously played for England. Finally, the game gives the second instance of three brothers playing in the same Test match, as Frank Hearne's brothers, Alec Hearne and George Hearne played for England, a cousin, John Thomas Hearne also played for the tourists and the tour was simultaneous to the English cricket team in Australia in 1891/92, both teams deemed to have "Test status".
