Notts Lose Out After Batting Collapse
Notts suffered a batting collapse to end their unbeaten start in the Friends Provident Trophy as Warwickshire Bears saw off the Outlaws challenge with 20 overs to spare.
Aside from a useful stand of 41 from Will Jefferson, the Notts’ top order misfired spectacularly. Matt Wood went for 0, caught by Johnson of Naqaash Tahir facing his first ball, before Mark Wagh (18) and Adam Voges (1) were bowled in quick succession.
Chris Read was perhaps unfortunate to have been given lbw off Carter but when Ealham was also caught leg before, Pattinson entered the fray with the Outlaws 69 short of their target and could only add ten before James Anyon ripped out his off-stump.
Luke Fletcher went lbw from Anyon’s next ball and Ant Botha dismissed Swann to leave Notts 53 runs short of their target, all out for 121.
Notts bowler Darren Pattinson had continued his hot streak with the ball, dismissing Tahia in fortunate circumstances.
Botha hit the ball at Pattinson who’s miss-field deflected on to the stumps with Tahia outside of his crease.
Figures of 4-29 should serve as an indicator of Pattinson’s continued comfort at this level and Samit Patel also enjoyed success, taking 3-19 from six overs.
A spectacular final-ball catch from Adam Voges on the boundary brought an end to Warwickshire’s innings of 173, punctuated by 64 from Ian Westwood, but the early wickets cost Notts dearly.
