This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
This benefit match for A Rogers was drawn, with the Oxfordshire last-wicket pair at the crease and 77 runs still needed for victory.
For Wiltshire, Miller scored 61 and Stevens 55.
W R R Smith took 7 wickets for 44 runs in the Oxfordshire first innings.
For the home team, Marsh's 69 not out contained 8 fours.
Three batsmen in the match were dismissed for 'pairs'.
There is some uncertainty as to which Marsh caught Ransome in the Wiltshire first innings.
It has been attributed to J W Marsh who was keeping wicket.
[Missing: Fall of wickets; in Wiltshire 2nd inns boundaries in Miller's 61 and Steven's 55, and batting order; in Oxfordshire 2nd inns batting order.]
