“Getting the late wickets was important to us and if we can pick up in the same vain tomorrow then we could find ourselves in a good position,” said Notts Director of Cricket Mick Newell.
“A score somewhere between 250 and 300 would have been more acceptable and I don’t like to lose four wickets for one run but there were some good batting performances and we have started well with the ball.”
