This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
A drawn return match with rain stopping play on the afternoon of the second day after Wiltshire in their second innings required 211 runs to win.
When the two teams met at Oxford earlier in the month, the game had also been drawn.
In the Wiltshire first innings A Rogers took 8 wickets for 46 runs.
For Oxfordshire, J F Marsh scored 56.
The 5 catches held by Smith in the match were the most by a fielder in the season.
No extras were conceded in either of the Wiltshire innings.
[An alternative version of this score, based on Wiltshire sources, for the Wiltshire second innings has P Rogers bowling 6 maidens and conceding 34 runs and A Rogers bowling 2 maidens and conceding 21 runs.]
[Missing: Umpires; extras breakdown; fall of wickets; in Oxfordshire 1st inns boundaries in J F Marsh's 56; in Oxfordshire 2nd inns batting order; in Wiltshire 2nd inns batting order.]
