--> PF Jackson (1) passed his previous highest score of 28 in Minor Counties Championship matches
--> P Isherwood made his last appearance in Minor Counties Championship matches

Oxfordshire, needing 203 to win in 113 minutes, fell six runs short short.
Jackson's 61 contained 6 x 4; Talboys hit 1 x 6 and 10 x 4 in his 61.
Bush hit 1 x 6 and 15 x 4 in his 99.
His partner in astand of 164, Lane-Fox hit 1 x 6 and 8 x 4.
A curiosity is that Barnett appears not to have kept wicket for Bucks.
