--> JE Palmer made his last appearance in Minor Counties Championship matches

The start was delayed by wet weather and play began at 1.12. A partnership between Laver, who hit
3 x 6 and 8 x 4 in his 95, and Atkins (1 x 6 and 15 x 4 in his 101) yielded 181 for the second wicket.
With no prospect of winning Oxfordshire blocked out the final sessions.
