After this illness, Grace grew rapidly to his full height of 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m). [95] In the second 1865 match, this time at Lord's, the Gentlemen finally ended their losing streak and won by 8 wickets, but it was E. M. Grace, not W. G., who was the key factor with 11 wickets in the match. [154] In his prime, he was a fine thrower, a fast runner and a safe catcher. [159] However, in his later years he had to pay for a locum tenens to run his medical practice while he was playing cricket and he had a reputation for treating his poorer patients without charging a fee.

The 1874 season was very successful for him as he completed a second successive double. Grace achieved his career-best bowling analysis of 10/49 when playing for MCC against Oxford University at The Parks in 1886; and he scored 104 in his only innings to complete a rare "match double".
