This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
This return match was drawn, as had been the game between the two teams at Reading earlier in the month.
It was played on what newspaper reports described as a slow wicket.
For Berkshire, there were 3 fours in Williams's 53.
For Oxfordshire, Smith scored 98. in an innings of one hour and 45 minutes.
He was out in the final over of the game, going for his century.
In the Oxfordshire second innings Holloway and Smith put on 126 runs for the second wicket..
[An alternative version of this score has Smith c and b L G Brown.]
[Missing: In Oxfordshire 1st inns fall of ninth wicket; in Oxfordshire 2nd inns boundaries in Smith's 98, and extras breakdown; in Berkshire inns fall of third and fourth wickets.]
