Will Rhodes leads the way for hosts with 91 before Paterson’s burst of three wickets in 14 balls

Warwickshire 250 for 6 (Rhodes 91, Hain 61, Paterson 3-57) vs Nottinghamshire

Three late wickets from Dane Paterson put Group 1 leaders Nottinghamshire slightly on top against Warwickshire on the opening day of their LV=County Championship game at Edgbaston.

The home side closed the first day on 250 for 6, having been 238 for 3 after Nottinghamshire, chasing a fourth successive win, had failed to make the desired early inroads in humid conditions.

Warwickshire captain Will Rhodes led the way for his side with a resolute 91 from 188 balls, including ten fours, before falling to the last ball before tea. Sam Hain and Matt Lamb added 75 in 26 overs in the final session before Paterson’s burst of three wickets in 14 balls evened the day up again.

Runs never flowed freely, but it was a tight, enthralling day’s play amid a lovely atmosphere in the Birmingham sunshine with spectators back in the ground. There were 1,808 Warwickshire members present and they ended the day happy enough having seen their team find some batting resilience – the Bears began this game with the fewest batting points of all 18 teams across the three groups.
