This card comes from the Minor Counties Research Project
By winning this return match at 3.35 pm on the second day, Berkshire completed the double over Wiltshire, having won the match at Trowbridge when the two teams met the previous week. For the second game running against Wiltshire, a Berkshire bowler took nine second-innings wickets, this time it being Williams with 9 for 42 runs. This analysis was statistically the joint second best innings bowling performance of the season, equalling his colleague Barrett's analysis at Trowbridge the week before. In the match Williams took 12 wickets for 109 runs, and he also scored 45, including 5 fours, in the Berkshire first innings. Dauglish's 55 for the winners included 9 fours. When he had scored 8 in the Berkshire first innings, Croome reached his thousand runs in championship matches. For the losers, Awdry top-scored with 40. The 4 catches held by Smart in the Berkshire first innings equalled the Championship record held by F Arnold for Oxfordshire v Wiltshire at Trowbridge in 1896. None of the sources listed includes the bowling analysis for the Berkshire second innings which has been deduced from the averages.
