Nottinghamshire's Second XI wrapped up a 49-run win over Warwickshire on the final day of proceedings at Lady Bay. 

Warwickshire started the day on 33-2 in pursuit of 230 runs for victory with Dan Mousley (5*) and Seb Mead (3*) at the crease. 

Notts made their first breakthrough of the day with the first ball of the 20th over, Joey Evison trapping Mead (7) lbw.

Alex Mellor joined Mousely in the middle, and the pair were able to bring up a fifty stand before two wickets in four balls turned the match in the hosts' favour.

Kashif Ali notched his first wicket of the day when Mousley (47) was caught at mid-off by John Richardson, and Mellor (33) soon followed him back into the pavilion when Louis Bhabra was at mid-wicket to hand Coughlin his fifth wicket of the match. with the score at 114-5.

With Warwickshire 114-5, Notts sensed an oppotunity to seize control of the contest, claiming two wickets in quick succession before the lunch break, thanks to Ali and Coughlin once more. 

Harry Johnson was sent packing without scoring when he was clean bowled by Ali, and Paul Coughlin picked up his fourth of the innings when he trapped Craig Miles (0) lbw.

The away side stemmed the tide with a 34-run partnership for the eighth wicket, but Joey Evison's removal of George Panayi and Jake Lintott, both for 14, all-but ended the contest.

It was down to Kashif Ali to seal Notts’ triumph, when Ben Slater was at the mid-wicket boundary to catch Ethan Brookes (30).

Warwickshire were dismissed for 180, handing Notts victory with one session left to spare.


There is just one further opportunity to catch the Outlaws in T20 group stage action at Trent Bridge this summer, with Durham the visitors under the Friday night lights on 30 August.
