The venue may have been different, but the result was exactly the same as Bucks went down by four wickets in their second 50-over friendly match against Hertfordshire at Amersham on Sunday.
Seven days after their, four-wicket last-over defeat by Herts at High Wycombe, Bucks were again on the wrong end of the result, this time with nearly 12 overs to spare.
On a fast bouncy pitch, Bucks struggled after winning the toss and slipped to 45-4, against some particularly fine swing bowling from Bill Jones, who took 2-15 from his ten overs.
The Bucks recovery was led by Harefield's Dan Ogden, who scored 62 of 76 balls with two sixes and five fours. Shelvin Gumbs added a breezy 30, while a late flourish from Cameron Parsons, with a run-a-ball 20, lifted Bucks to 192 all out from 47 overs.
This appeared to be at least 40 runs short of a challenging total. Herts were always ahead of the game thanks to a classy innings of 61 from 79 balls from skipper Reece Hussain, the nephew of former England captain Nasser Hussain.
A hostile spell of fast bowling down the hill from Cameron Parsons, who took 2-32 from ten overs, gave Bucks a brief hope, but Dominic Chatfield followed his century the previous week with a lively unbeaten 37 as Herts raced home with a flurry of fours and sixes against the Bucks spinners.
Bucks's next outing is a 50-over match against Oxfordshire for the Nurton-York Cup to be played at High Wycombe on Sunday, May 23.
