Viz the pitch, Farmer, LG's take is that the track has a little bit of nip in it - but that it is slower than the Kent track, reducing the margin of error for the bowlers. I certainly think there was zero sign of the track being two-paced in any way and that would explain the confidence, on the drive, of the Notts batsmen, IMO.

In some respects Notts bowled rather more accurately than we did (less to hit) - or perhaps, when they bowled bad balls they weren't just slightly bad - but rather utter rubbish, such as Broad's wide, another one that went over the keeper's head etc - hence they didn't get whacked for four or six off the bat, in the way that our guys did when they made minor errors of either dropping short or over pitching.
