Outlaws Must Improve In Royal Re-Match
Notts Director of Cricket Mick Newell has identified Worcestershire openers Vikram Solanki and Steven Davies as key threats ahead of Sunday’s Friends Provident Trophy fixture at Trent Bridge.
The duo helped the Royals cruise to a Duckworth-Lewis victory last Monday but Notts could oust them from top spot in Group A with a victory.
“Worcestershire are tough opposition in one day cricket and were unable to establish any kind of platform last week,” said Newell.
“Quite simply, we have to play better than we did because I suspect we’ll need at least five wins to qualify from the group.”
Newell will name an unchanged team with Mark Wagh and Ali Brown set to open the batting. Worcestershire seamer Ashley Noffke, who slowed Notts down with 3-37, has recovered from a hip strain to take his place in the Royals’ squad.
Notts Outlaws: Mark Wagh, Ali Brown, Alex Hales, Samit Patel, Adam Voges, Will Jefferson, Chris Read, Paul Franks, Mark Ealham, Andre Adams
