County Championship round-up: Tim Ambrose dents Nottinghamshire's title hopes
Wednesday 02 July 2014
Warwickshire put themselves back into Championship contention with a three-wicket win over fellow title chasers Nottinghamshire at Edgbaston.
The home side were led to victory by Tim Ambrose’s unbeaten 82 after 18-year-old Sam Hain made the visiting team pay for dropping him on two and 18 by sharing a 56-run stand with nightwatchman Chris Wright, one of 108 with Ambrose and finishing on 63.
Nottinghamshire looked favourites when Jonathan Trott was caught at short leg off Peter Siddle in the first over but, save for a brief scare when they slipped from 228 for 4 to 234 for 7, Warwickshire’s target of 289 always seemed one they could achieve.
Maximum bonus points take Nottinghamshire eight points clear of Yorkshire at the top of the First Division but their three closest pursuers have all played a match fewer. Warwickshire go third, level on points with Somerset, who drew with Lancashire, but some 23 off the lead.
