M.C.C. and Ground v. Wiltshire

The Wiltshire Times (24 august 1901, p. 7)

At Lord's, on Friday, the home club gained a slight advantage on the first day's play. Going in first they compiled 158, thanks to spirited batting by King, the Leicestershire left hander, whose 84 included a dozen fours. Smart's leg breaks secured six wickets for 49. The visitors obtained 123, H. S. Snell (28) and A. M. Miller (29, not out), being the chief scorers. Holloway did the chief damage, capturing six wickets for 29. In their second innings the M.C.C. lost King and A. Page for 33 runs. On Saturday Captain Wynyard (44), Conan Doyle (33), and the Rev. Hattersley Smith (28) were the only batsmen to offer effective resistance to the bowling of Overton and Smart, and the innings again closed for 156. Left to get 190 runs to win, Wiltshire lost five good for 129. A. M. Miller and H. Taunton took the total to 157 before the former was bowled. Taunton and Smith were then associated, and both gave chances before the winning hit was made, the county winning as stated. Scores:—
