JIMMY Adams top scored with an unbeaten 97 on the second and final day of Hampshire’s friendly against Nottinghamshire in Barbados.

But Adams was one of four to bat twice after Hampshire lost their top seven in 47 overs, before closing on 309-9 in reply to Notts’ 287-6.

Adams lost his leg stump not offering a shot against the swing of Jake Ball in the third over of the day.

Hampshire were 39-3 when Will Smith chopped on against Harry Gurney, after Liam Dawson nicked Ball (2-20) to third slip. 

James Vince (30) and Adam Wheater (36) added 63 before both were dismissed by teenage off-spinner Matthew Carter.

Vince was bowled in the last over before lunch and shortly after the interval 18 year-old Carter had Wheater caught at mid-off and Tom Alsop (0) lbw.

When Sean Ervine (36) chopped on after backing away from Luke Wood, Hampshire sent Adams, Smith, Dawson and Alsop in again.

Smith (13) was lbw to Samit Patel attempting to sweep, but Adams made a battling half, reaching his fifty in 114 balls with six fours.

Dawson has his off stump flattened by Will Gidman and Adams finished three runs short of a century as the day ended with a maiden against Alsop.

Hampshire conclude their tour with another two-day friendly, against Warwickshire, before Ageas Bowl friendlies against Surrey (March 28/29), Loughborough UCCE (April 2-4) and Kent (7-8).

The season begins with the LV County Championship match against Sussex (April 12-15).
