Lancashire V Nottinghamshire – 2 poor teams slug it out

I went to watch what turned out to be the last day of the County Championship match at Liverpool Cricket Club’s Aigburth ground yesterday and whilst it was a great finish (Notts winning by one wicket) you could not but think how poor the batting was on both sides.

The Lancs tail seemed to prove this by showing how well it was possible to bat on the pitch at the end of their second innings.

A win for Notts is welcome but they will have to re-learn the art of batting if they really are to be serious contenders for the championship this year. As for Lancs they do need to get a couple of wins under their belt otherwise Division 2 will beckon them once again.

Here are a few shots I took on what was a lovely Liverpool day:-
