Hello again! Thomas Frost here again. Hampshire have won the toss and decided to bowl.

Nass making a couple of errors at the toss. Firstly not knowing that Mason Crane played the quarter final and then asked Notts captain Dan Christian if he minded chasing when they won't be!

Notts team: Hales, Wessels, Moores, Taylor, Christian, Patel, Mullaney, Root, Sodhi, Ball, Gurney (so no Stuart Broad!) Hampshire team: Afridi, Dickinson, Vince, Bailey, Carberry, Dawson, Berg, Alsop, Abbott, Wood, Crane

The innings starts at half 2 so join me then!

Alfie the Gorilla wins back to back mascot races!

Players on to the field. Notts batting first, Alex Hales and Riki Wessels opening the batting.

Wessels facing. Liam Dawson opening the bowling as Kashmir by Led Zeppelin is played on the tannoy.

Overthrows! - A good over ruined by James Vince throwing to the striker's end as they take a comfortable single, throw is wild, goes by the keeper and away for 4 . 7/0 (1) Wessels 6 (5) Hales 1 (1)

Gareth Berg bowling at the other end.
