David Hopps at Notts 94-8 trail Hants 319 by 125 runs
That Chris Read is in defiant mood for Notts, carving away, should not surprise anyone. But Notts have still lost two wickets in the first hour after lunch, Michael Lumb's restrained 39 coming to an end with two boundaries in succession off Andy Carter and then a wicketkeeper's catch, and a bright 27 from Luke Wood, full of off-side carves, ended by a bouncer from around the wicket from Ryan McLaren. Notts could have done with a repeat of his rapid down-the-order hundred
against Sussex last season.
