This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project - research is continuing on this scorecard which can be expected to change.
This match was left drawn with Dorset winning on first innings. Inclement weather meant there was no play on the second day and the match was abandoned at 2 pm. For the visitors Bennett top-scored in both innings with knocks of 74 and an unbeaten 21. For the hosts Williams made the highest score of 35 whilst Webb took 11 wickets in the match, with 6 wickets in Berkshire's first innings and 5 wickets in the second. All his victims were bowled.
[Missing: Toss; umpires; fall of wickets; extras breakdown; boundaries in Bennett's 74, the substitute who caught Brougham; all bowling orders; Dorset bowling figures, bowling runs for the match for Berkshire bowlers deduced from the averages in Wisden except for Hawksworth whose averages in Wisden exclude this match so he has been given the balance of the runs conceded.]
