Joey Evison produced a commanding performance at number three to help Nottinghamshire’s Second XI overhaul the first-innings total of their Warwickshire counterparts on day two at Portland Road.

Evison hit 152 from 151 deliveries as Notts closed day two on 392/2 – a lead of 32 runs.

After reaching three figures, the Academy graduate opened his shoulders with aplomb in the latter stages of his innings, moving from 100 to 150 in just 20 balls.

The 49th over of the contest, in which Evison hit Dan Mousley for 21 runs, was the 19-year old’s most explosive, featuring two fours and two sixes.

Evison found able support in the form of opener Matthew Montgomery, who compiled his own century and remained unbeaten on 139 at stumps.

Montgomery brought up his hundred from 133 balls, striking 21 fours, having weathered the loss of his fellow opener Ben Compton (4) in the eighth over.

After Evison’s departure, the right-hander played a supporting role as Sol Budinger punished a tired Warwickshire attack, clubbing an unbeaten 75 from 54 deliveries.

Earlier, Evison and Peter Trego swiftly brought the Warwickshire innings to an end, with the hosts only able to add seven runs to their overnight total.

Ethan Brookes’ resolute stay at the crease was ended by skipper Trego, while Evison induced an edge from the bat of number 11 Ryan Sidebottom to conclude the Bears’ innings on 360.
