Stuart Broad struggled with the ball on his return from injury as Lancashire headed towards a first-innings lead over Notts at Old Trafford.
Broad, making his first LV= County Championship appearance of the season and playing his first match since injuring a calf in the first Test against Sri Lanka in March, went for 60 off 14 overs without taking a wicket, conceding almost half the runs Lancashire scored.
He was by far the least efficient member of the Notts attack, helping Lancashire close in on a first innings lead as they reached lunch on 129 for four, 40 runs shy of Notts' total of 169.
Broad's England team-mate Graeme Swann did better, taking one for 12 off seven overs.
Stephen Moore was the top scorer for Lancashire with 43.
No play was possible this morning in the other Division One match already under way, where Warwickshire are on 116 for five in reply to Durham's 163, with Ian Bell not out on 59.
The start between Middlesex and Worcestershire at Lord's was also delayed by bad weather.
In Division Two, Jonny Bairstow continued to lift Yorkshire spirits as he added 42 runs to his overnight tally of 141 before being caught by Jacques du Toit off Wayne White.
Anthony McGrath was still in, unbeaten on 84, at lunch with Yorkshire on 415 for eight.
Chris Dent was unbeaten on 53 at lunch as Gloucestershire reached 94 for two in their reply to Derbyshire's 388 at the County Ground.
The hosts added 16 runs to their overnight total before losing their final wicket, Jonathan Clare falling for 48, and then made a bright start with the ball as Gloucestershire opener Benny Howell was out for a duck.
There was no play in either of the other two matches, with Hampshire stuck on 42 for three in reply to Northamptonshire's 218 and Glamorgan one without loss replying to Essex's 259 for nine declared.
