--> AJ Pithey (1) passed 7000 runs in First-Class matches when he reached 42
--> EF Parker (1) passed his previous highest score of 45 in First-Class matches
--> FTM Drummer made his debut for Transvaal in First-Class matches
--> WR Kerr made his debut for Transvaal in First-Class matches
--> WR Kerr achieved his best innings bowling analysis in First-Class matches when he dismissed AJ Pithey in the Rhodesia first innings (previous best was 2-13)

12th man for Rhodesia was SD Robertson and for Transvaal M Gamble.
In the final over of the Rhodesian innings, Parker hit Drummer for 26 in an over. The over included two apparently deliberate wides, and one four fell only marginally short of a straight six. Sources: South African Cricket Annual 1969, The Herald, The Sunday Mail. Contributed by John Ward (
