County Championship round-up: Ajmal Shahzad settling at Notts

Performance of the day Ajmal Shahzad has made a low-key start to life as a Nottinghamshire bowler following his fall-out with Yorkshire and a move to Lancashire that was curtailed, in effect, when the Red Rose county were relegated. Trent Bridge may be a helpful ground for bowlers but those new to it must first learn how to make it work for them and Shahzad is still getting to grips with his new surroundings. In the sea air at Hove yesterday, he first turned an overnight 35 not out into a maiden half-century for Nottinghamshire. Then he found conditions to his liking with the ball and delivered his best performance so far for his new county, bowling Chris Nash off a bottom edge, cartwheeling Mike Yardy's off stump and finding the edge to have Rory Hamilton-Brown caught at first slip.
