Kyle Abbott strengthened Hampshire’s title ambitions with a six-wicket burst on the opening day of their Specsavers County Championship match against Nottinghamshire at Welbeck Cricket Club.

The former South African international returned figures of six for 37 from his 14 overs as Notts were bundled out for just 162 in only 60.2 overs.

Steven Mullaney batted for almost three hours for the home side, making 45 from 114 deliveries, with four fours and a six.

Hampshire, second in the table at start of play, closed on 93 for two, with Joe Weatherley unbeaten on 47.
