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 after heavy rain on the second day halted play for the day at shortly before 3.30 pm, when Surrey were still 68 runs short of the 91 required to win. At 5.15 the Surrey captain agreed the match should be abandoned as there was no prospect of it being resumed. Wiltshire had won the match between the two sides in June at The Oval in a single day. Showers had stopped play for a number of short periods on the morning of the first day. For the visitors, Platt took 11 wickets in the match for 128 runs, including 7 for 65 in the Wiltshire second innings. There were 10 fours in Vigar's 62, 8 fours in Brooker's 57 and 6 fours in Platt's 47. In the Surrey first innings, Brooker and Vigar put on 103 runs for the first wicket, and Platt and Rutty 58 runs for the ninth. For the home side, there were 10 fours in Newman's 76 and 11 fours in R W Awdry's 57. During the Surrey first innings with the score at 185, Jewell was given run out. He was recalled by the Wiltshire captain on the grounds that ball had not struck the stumps. On the second day during the Wiltshire second innings, Vigar was struck on the head by a rising ball and did not resume keeping wicket after lunch.
