Now it's the batsmen's turn to try and better Notts first innings 272 but the Lancashire reply has not got off to a good start with two wickets down for 28 and we trail by 244 runs.
There is no immediate news on Saqib Mahmood who is being assessed after pulling up with a side strain yesterday. Steven Croft was the other injury concern but he did return to field and bowl late on yesterday.
It's a bright and sunny day at Trent Bridge and we get under way at 10.30am.
