A superb performance from Nottinghamshire as they complete the white-ball double, and having been 30 for 3 earlier on. Patel and Taylor mounted the fightback, Christian finished it off and then the varied attack always had the defence of the title under control. Outstanding control of their slower-ball variations, well captained by Dan Christian. No doubt about the limited-overs side of the season. But a word, too, for Birmingham who have shown what bringing in youth can do to a side that was struggling. A terrific overall day as well, helped by good weather and a top-class pitch. That's just about wraps things up for today. Thanks for joining us and we'll be back for the Test match on Thursday. From Alan, Gnasher and Shashank it's goodnight!
