This return match was drawn as had been the game between the two teams at Watford the previous week. Rain prevented any play on the first day after 1.00 pm. For Hertfordshire, Butcher's 71 included 14 fours, and with Field he put on 118 runs for the third wicket in the visitors' first innings. Nepean's 74 for Berkshire contained 12 fours.
