Interested to know if any posters with comments on todays play are in Nottingham watching live with first hand knowkedge of play & conditions?
Or just looking at the card and or a conputer fixed camera stream?

Against a strong batting line up, and fast outfield on a sunny day we bowled a division 1 side out inside 2 sessions.
If i was being picky we bowled a few too many 4 balls but if you want wickets you have to have attacking fields and pitch it up to encourage those edges.

Broad is a test bowler with 400+ test wickets, he bowled well. Azhar LBW looked leggy live & on replays to me but hey ho. Hildy leg strangle to worst ball Notts bowled.
Tom & George looked solid & saw us to the close well.

Roll on 11am, we saw not 5 days ago how much fight this team has, lets see how things stand at the close of day 2.
Parity-ish would set up a great final 2 days.
