A crushing result, 310 runs the margin for Notts, as they claim a first Championship win since June 2018! Incredible that a side who can call on internationals such as Broad, Paterson, Ball, Hameed and so on have managed to go this long without a victory, but they're on the board for the 2021 season. First success in 31 first-class games, and you can be sure that'll make lunch taste good
