‘A Rare Finish to a Great Game’, the ninth in a series of short-run, limited edition monographs, recalls the match played at Kennington Oval on 16, 17, 18 August 1894. The rain-affected county championship encounter between Surrey and Lancashire ended in one of the more uncommon of cricket results - a tie. It was Lancashire’s first tied match in first class cricket and the county has since been involved in only three more such matches throughout its illustrious first-class cricketing history.
