Wiltshire CCC first Championship match washed out by rain!
Wiltshire' first match in the Unicorns County Championship, Western Division against Oxfordshire on Sunday/ Monday/Tuesday at Great and Little Tew fell a victim to the weather and ended in a draw with only 76 overs being played and all of these on the first day.
Oxfordshire won the toss and chose to bat. The pitch was likely to prove tricky for batsmen and they were bowled out for 95 in 42 overs. James Arney returned the excellent figures of 16 overs 4 for 17 and Jake Goodwin took 3 for 17. They were aided by some good Wiltshire catching. Wiltshire also found runs hard to come by and at one time were 52 for 5 wickets (Ed Young 25) but an aggressive partnership between Jake Lintott (23 not out) and Ashur Morrison (16 not out) took the score to 91 for 5 wickets by the close of the first day. This was the end of the match as heavy rain prevented any further play.
