This rain-affected game, which saw Dorset's debut in a Championship match, ended as a draw. On the first day, rain delayed the start until shortly before 1.00 pm and prevented any play after lunch. For Dorset, Ward top-scored with 58. In the Dorset innings, Ward and Wilkinson added 64 runs for the seventh wicket, and Manfield and Hallam put on 39 for the tenth wicket. Dorset only played 2 Championship matches, home and away versus Wiltshire, and did not qualify for the table.
[Missing: In Dorset inns boundaries in Ward's 58; in Wiltshire inns extras breakdown.]
