Second XI skipper Lyndon James compiled a commanding unbeaten century as Nottinghamshire played out a drawn friendly encounter with Warwickshire at Portland Road.

While Notts contested a first-team friendly against the West Midlands outfit a matter of miles down the road, James crafted a fluent 107 at the top of the order, hitting 18 fours and a six during his 242-minute stay at the crease.

The Academy graduate was supported by a string of middle-order cameos, with Peter Trego (29 from 34 balls), Dane Schadendorf (27 from 48 balls) and Matthew Carter (30 from 40 balls) all enjoying fruitful stints in the middle.

Carter was one of four batsmen to fall to George Garrett, with the 21-year-old seamer finishing as the pick of the home attack with figures of 4-57.

Nottinghamshire’s innings was declared closed after 56 overs, with James and Pettman the unbeaten batsmen.

And the captain was to come to the fore once more with the ball, inducing Dan Mousley to edge behind for 15.

While wicketkeeper Michael Burgess would see out the remainder of the day in the company of captain Ed Pollock, he was unable to find any joy against Peter Trego.

The right-armer took the new ball and promptly sent down half a dozen miserly overs, not conceding a single run from his 36 deliveries.

Warwickshire reached 145-1 after 32 overs, at which point the captains agreed to call a halt to proceedings.
