First-class match, Lord's (day two): Warwickshire 345-5d v MCC
Knight hits out during his century
Nick Knight cracked the first century of the English first-class season as county champions Warwickshire started well against the MCC XI at Lord's.
Knight hit 115 as play belatedly got under way after Friday's wash-out.
Jonathan Trott (75) was also in good early nick as the Bears made 345-5 before declaring in the final session.
By then, Mark Wagh had struck 66 before becoming the first of Graeme Swann's two wickets, David Harrison claiming the other three wickets to fall.
England A captain Ian Bell, facing eight of his team-mates from last month's tour of Sri Lanka in the MCC side, could only manage 14 before heading back to the new Lord's pavilion.
The Bears included batsman Alex Loudon, who has joined them from Kent, and South African paceman Dewald Pretorius, returning to the club under the Kolpak rule.
Six other county sides started three-day games against university opposition on Saturday.
But the Championship does not get underway until next Wednesday, when Warwickshire host newly-promoted Glamorgan at Edgbaston.
MCC: John Stephenson (Capt), Andy Flower (Essex), Alastair Cook (Essex), David Harrison (Glam), Jon Lewis (Gloucs), Sajid Mahmood (Lancs), Mark Pettini (Essex), Michael Powell (Glam), Matt Prior (Sussex), Owais Shah (Middx), Graeme Swann (Notts).
