Day To Forget For Second Eleven
Bilal Shafayat top scored with 19 as Nottinghamshire Second Eleven endured a day to forget in their final Second Eleven Trophy game against Lancashire at Neston yesterday.
were bowled out for 62 in 78 minutes with Lancashire knocking off the required runs in nine overs to win by 9 wickets.
Montgomerie, who played against Notts for Warwickshire earlier in the competition, was the chief destroyer with 4-21.
He bowled six wides in his first two overs and had Welton lbw from the penultimate ball of that over, but found his line in his next claiming three victims in four balls in Hales, Patel and Mohammed.
Shafayat and Elstone took the score from 16-4 to 44 before Elstone gave a return catch to bowler Mullaney.
Shafayat was out three runs later, the only batsman to reach double figures, and the innings was then quickly over as Caunce took 3-3 from 2.2 overs.
Five batsmen were lbw, the ball swinging a little with some seam movement but in truth it was a mixture of good bowling and poor batting.
Despite losing Karl Brown to Andrew Carter with the score on seven, Lancashire wasted no time in securing victory with Mullaney being particularly savage on the bowling as he hit two sixes and five fours in his 36 not out.
