Warks Struggle At Notts Break Records

Warwickshire are facing an innings defeat after Nottinghamshire’s openers spent yesterday making history at Edgbaston.

Darren Bicknell and Guy Welton scored 406 for the visiting team without losing their wicket in more than 130 overs.

The declaration was made when Welton, who scored his maiden county century, reached 200. Bicknell was just behind on 180.

Warwickshire now have to survive today’s play of the Division Two PPP Healthcare championship game to avoid a drubbing, having only made 110 in their first innings.

By the close of play yesterday they were 82 for 2.

Among the records set by Bicknell and Welton yesterday was the highest first wicket partnership at Edgbaston.

They also passed the highest partnership for Nottinghamshire for any wicket (the previous top score being set over 100 years ago), the highest unbroken first-wicket stand in the County Championship and the highest partnership for any wicket between Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire.
