Talks Can Wait."

Nottinghamshire captain Chris Read plans to hold contract talks with Director of Cricket Mick Newell at the end of the season.

Read fielded questions about his future after playing a leading role in helping Notts Outlaws secure a first one day trophy since 1989.

"Mick and I will sit down and have a good chat about how we can build Notts and take things forwards." Chris Read

"I have been offered a new contract but I've said to Mick that I'd prefer to sit down once the dust has settled on the season," said Read.

"The absence of a trophy win at Lord's has been nagging at me for a long time and that's been addressed but we're in a precarious position in the championship and a team of this quality shouldn't be.

"Mick and I will sit down and have a good chat about how we can build Notts and take things forwards."

Read's half century helped the Outlaws to compile a winning total that Glamorgan rarely threatened to reach and his upturn in form on the big stage was a source of personal pride.

"My batting hasn't worked for me this season but I've done nothing different," he said.

"It felt great today to watch the ball and set out to do well for the team. The partnership with David Hussey was important as it meant that the lower order could come in and accelerate the rate which they did fantastically well."

Read was quick to praise a side awash with star batsmen but underpinned by 'unsung heroes'.

"We've got a formidable top seven and some young bowlers learning their craft but the likes of Harry Gurney, Jake Ball and Steven Mullaney have been excellent," he said.

"We've built a squad with a lot of high quality white ball cricketers and we'll all enjoy this success.

"The next game is massive for us and the momentum and joy that we feel now will carry us forwards."
