But William Tavare has so far scored his runs at a reasonable rate, facing 272 balls with two sixes and 19 fours. He received good support from Australian opener Michael Klinger, who made 81.

Meanwhile England fast bowler Steven Finn, another playing looking to put a nightmare tour of Australia behind him, continued his encouraging start to the season with four for 87, although Nottinghamshire still made 315 for eight against Middlesex at Lord’s.
