Steven Mullaney underlined his credentials at the top of the order with 88 runs in a day of competitive batting practice against Hampshire in Barbados.

Mullaney struck 12 fours in his four-hour stand as Nottinghamshire posted 227 for 11 with 13 players in the order.

James Taylor will have a side strain assessed having retired on 13 not out while Riki Wessels (40), Sam Wood (20) and Luke Fletcher (15) were the only other players to spend meaningful time in the middle.
