Hampshire eased to a six-wicket Friends Provident Trophy win against Nottinghamshire despite an innings of 93 from Will Jefferson.

After winning the toss, Notts slipped to 50-6 as Dimitri Mascarenhas (4-49) and Dominic Cork (3-13) ran riot.

Jefferson then shared a seventh-wicket stand of 94 with Paul Franks (50) to help the visitors to 202 all out.

But 57 from Michael Lumb and Michael Carberry's unbeaten 42 guided Hampshire to their target inside 44 overs.

Hampshire captain Mascarenhas was appearing in his first game since returning from his stint in the IPL.

He picked up the wickets of Mark Wagh, Ally Brown, Alex Hales and Chris Read to destroy the Notts top order.

As well as Cork, he was well supported by Billy Taylor (3-40) as only three visiting batsman made double figures.

Then a first-wicket stand of 66 between Lumb and John Crawley, and Carberry and Chris Benham's partnership of 66 for the fourth wicket saw Hampshire home with 40 balls to spare.

Hampshire manager Giles White told BBC Radio Solent:

"We are pleased to get the win because Notts are a dangerous side.

"It's the trend to win the toss and bat here and we might have done the same.

"The ball wasn't moving around a lot and they gave a few wickets away.

"Michael Lumb and John Crawley gave us a good start and from there we were in the box seat."
