Nottinghamshire’s Second Eleven Championship clash against the MCC Young Cricketers ended in a draw in a rain-affected third day.

At 2pm, the pair continued on 119-3 and progressed to 180, before Alex Hales was caught off Shahzad for a quickly-scored 43. Adam Tillcock joined Root and the pair saw Nottinghamshire through to a declaration on 203-4, Root unbeaten on 69.

The visitors were set 224 to win, but were set back by a wicket apiece for Jake Ball and Ajmal Shahzad. At 14-2 Liam Gough was joined by Sam Arthurton, the pair continuing until tea at 21-2. The rain returned in the interval, and no further play was possible. The match was declared a draw, with 11 points apiece.
