Specsavers County Championship Division One, Trent Bridge (day three):
Nottinghamshire 448: Slater 109
Yorkshire 357-5: Ballance 104, Kohler-Cadmore 92*
Yorkshire (6 pts) trail Nottinghamshire (6 pts) by 91 runs

Yorkshire moved on to 357-5 in reply to Nottinghamshire's 448 before rain brought an early end to day three.

Only three overs were possible after lunch at Trent Bridge and play was abandoned for the day at 16:00 BST.

Yorkshire added 99 runs to their overnight 258-4, with Jonny Tattersall (51) the only batsman to fall.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore (92 not out) will hope to reach his first Championship hundred for Yorkshire on day four, when a draw is the most likely outcome.

Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores:

"It was set fair to be set up for a good day tomorrow. We were still hoping to get a lead and I would think Yorkshire would have been thinking that they also could go on and get a lead, so it's a shame.

"It's a good cricket pitch that has been affected by the overheads. It's much better to bowl on it when the cloud comes over and when the sun comes out it's been better to bat on."

Yorkshire wicketkeeper Jonny Tattersall:

"It was a great partnership to get (with Kohler-Cadmore) and we needed it.

"If we'd have both got out this morning then it could have been a different story and Notts would have been in a strong position."
