Winning their third game in four matches Nottinghamshire’s Head Coach Peter Moores was very pleased with the result -

"It's now a very good start to the season. All three wins have been very different as well.

"From the Lancashire one, when there was a flurry of wickets in a short space of time, to the Worcestershire game, which felt like it was on fast forward, to this one which felt like it was a proper four-day win with hard graft all the way through.

"I've seen loads of games of four-day cricket but that's as good a four-day win as I've seen for a team being on the front foot."
