Lunch on day two - Nottinghamshire 371 (120.4 overs)

Hampshire 10-1

Hampshire bowler Andre Adams took two morning wickets to help the home side mop up the tail as Nottinghamshire were bowled out for 371 at the Ageas Bowl.

Hampshire’s reply stumbled in the 15 minutes before lunch as Liam Dawson left a swinging Vernon Philander delivery.

Skipper Jimmy Adams was also given a scare in the four overs, as Wood had a strong appeal for leg before turned down – but Hampshire reached 10-1 at the interval.

Hampshire’s experienced seam attack looked toothless on the opening day but bowled in a bolshie manner as they successfully cleaned up the tail.

Day one centurion Alex Hales could only add five runs to his overnight score before former teammate Adams dislodged his off stump – Hales swinging across the line for 141 from 221 balls.

Gareth Berg found the edge of Philander’s bat before Adams got the merest of nicks from Will Gidman before keeper Adam Wheater produced a full-length dive – which gave the home side maximum bowling points.

Luke Wood and Jake Ball made sure the home side were frustrated as the pair scored their highest Championship scores, both 26 in a stand of 47, before Liam Dawson bowled the latter.
