Smith aims big
Nott Outlaws v Gloucestershire Gladiators
Start time: 4.10pm
Tickets cost ?15 for adults, ?8 for concessions and ?35 for a family of two adults and two children.
The 22-year-old opener knows we need runs on the board to stand a chance of winning the first of three crunch games in the totesport League.
He said: ?We?re in trouble because we haven?t scored enough runs in one-day cricket all season and that needs to change if we?re going to stay up.
?As a top order batsman I need to be making a big contribution and I?m aiming for a minimum of two big innings in these final three matches.
?That has to start against Gloucestershire. Hopefully we can get on top of them as we did in the Championship and get the crowd behind us under the floodlights.?
Chris Read is expected to be fit after needing stitches to a facial injury he suffered on the second day of the Championship match.
David Alleyne is on stand-by.
Stephen Fleming returns to lead the side and slots in to the batting line-up with Younis Khan?s short spell as overseas player now finished.
Will Smith, Singh, Hussey, Fleming (captain), Patel, Read (wkt), Ealham, Swann, Clough, Sidebottom, Greg Smith, Harris, Alleyne.
