Match scorecard

Andre Adams took his 600th first-class wicket but Nottinghamshire and Lancashire were hit by the weather at Trent Bridge again.

After a 40-minute delay, the visitors resumed on 203-6 and had moved to 243-6 before Ashwell Prince (80) became the milestone wicket for Adams.

Three wickets then fell for only eight runs, including Glen Chapple for 24, before rain intervened again.

Kyle Hogg and Simon Kerrigan then guided Lancashire to 272-9.

Heavy rain in Nottingham overnight and in the morning saw play delayed until 11:40 BST.

Prince, who has scored six half-centuries already this season, was caught at first slip by Alex Hales off Adams, who completed his 14th five-wicket haul in the last three seasons for Notts.

Chapple was next to go bowled by Paul Franks, while Harry Gurney had Ajmal Shahzad caught behind by Chris Read in the next over.

Rain brought an early lunch with Lancashire on 260-9 and, although the players, came out for a short spell after the interval, play was abandoned in the afternoon session.


BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle:

"It's always nice when a rain-interrupted day features something worthy of note and Andre Adams' 600th first-class wicket is yet another major milestone for one of the true greats of the county game.

"In just 19 matches he has sped from 500 to 600 - surely no-one has done it quicker and he seems to be getting better and better.

"Fittingly, the landmark was an important scalp. Ashwell Prince had batted beautifully and his departure came from a trademark Adams delivery, just moving away enough to kiss the edge."
