Lincolnshire continued to take wickets in each of the sessions througout the day but an 8th wicket partnership of 52 between Salem & Ward enabled Bucks to believe that the follow on could be saved. However the intervention for rain which saw two & a half hours lost resulted in Lincolnshire taking a quick wicket before rain intervened again.

On resumption after 15 mins the last wicket was quickly taken the visitors being dismisseed for 165. Bob Chapman retuned figures of 4 for 43 from 15 overs, David Christmas 3 for 24 from 16.1 overs, David Pipes 2 for 46 from 14 overs & Martin Dobson 1 for 42 from 14 overs.

Buckinghamshire following on again lost an early wicket & a further wicket on the last ball of the day to close at 41 for 2
