A superb five wicket haul by Berkswell’s Tom Milnes wasn’t quite enough to prevent defeat for Warwickshire’s second eleven on Tuesday as they lost a close game by two wickets to Nottinghamshire at Berkswell’s Meeting House Lane Ground. Warwickshire lost the toss and were invited to bat on a slow paced and lost early wickets to find themselves in trouble at 9-3, before fourth wicket pairing Richard Johnson (51) and Usman Shabir (59) began rebuilding the innings.
