Shah hits Day Two century for Second XI
Honours even following Day Two at Notts Sports Club
Young Lancashire opener Owais Shah struck a century to set up an interesting final day of the Second XI's Championship fixture against Notts.
In response to Notts' 325-6 dec, Lancashire resumed Day Two 14-0, but lost Taylor Cornall and Danny Lamb early in the day.
Shah then formed solid partnerships with Danny Lamb and Ed Fluck, who both scored 24, before he was joined by George Lavelle and the pair added 90 for the fifth wicket.
Shah went to a superb century during the afternoon, eventually dismissed for 105 from 205 balls faced, including 10 fours and a six.
Lavelle hit 75, before a lower-order dash from Chris Sanders (32) brought parity for Lancs who then declared on 330-9 - with a first innings lead of five.
With the roles reversed from Day One, Notts then had a tricky session to survive in the evening - with the Red Rose making two breakthroughs.
Sanders and Ed Moulton claimed a wicket each as the home side closed on 35-2 with a lead of just 30 and all three results possible heading into the final day.
