Match Drawn - Notts 11pts / MCCYC 7pts
Notts were unable to bowl out the MCC Young Cricketers on the final day of this fixture at the Notts Sports Club.
The wicket remained favourable to the batsmen and as hard as the Notts bowlers tried, the visitors batted with great resolve to earn a draw.
Blacktopp and Ali added 62 for the first wicket - Dan Cumming having Ali (26) caught behind by Stanworth.
Blacktopp collided with Cumming as he attempted a caught and bowled off a skier from Cockbain but the appeal for obstruction was rejected by the umpires who deemed the collision accidental. He was eventually out by Hales at second slip for 57.
Two wickets to Graeme White had the visitors on 236-5 shortly after tea.
However, a stand of 90 between Muchall (62) and Hassan (31) took the score to 326-5 when day the sides shook hands on a draw.
