Lancashire marked their return to the championship's top flight with an emphatic opening win over Nottinghamshire at Old Trafford.

After sitting out last week's first round, the Red Rose wrapped up their eight-wicket victory just before lunch.

The task was a simple one, after Neil Wagner bowled Lancashire into a position which required them to make only 86 in their second innings.

Jake Ball got rid of both openers early - to finish with six wickets in the match, to Wagner's 11 - but Alviro Petersen and Luke Procter sealed the deal in an unbroken stand.

Procter made the winning runs in the grand manner with a six.
