New bowlers Andre Adams and Mark Davieswill be appearing for the first time in Notts colours tomorrow in a 50-oversfriendly against Cricket Victoria Emerging Players.

New Zealander Adams flew in at the weekendas an overseas replacement for David Hussey with a brief to hit the groundrunning – and play his part in getting the two more victories Notts need toclinch promotion in the LV Championship.

Davies, signed on loan from Durham to helpease the Notts injury-crisis, was denied a debut when last week's floodlitPro40 game was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

But he will be viewing tomorrow's contestas a warm-up for the Championship clash with Northamptonshire, starting onWednesday, and so will four other players.

Mark Ealham will use the game as a fitnesstest following his recent hamstring problem while Jason Gallian, Will Jeffersonand Bilal Shafayat are also included.

Said Director of Cricket Mick Newell: "Allsix of them will be in strong contention for places against Northants if theycome through the game successfully."

Adams is certain to make his debut and hesaid: "I've just been involved in a six week series of one-day and Twenty20matches against Australia, so I'm in good nick.

"It's always difficult to step off a planeand drop straight into things but I've done it before with Essex, so it is nottotally fresh for me.

"I know Stephen Fleming well, of course,and that will help. He's done a good job here and although I won't be aroundfor long, hopefully I can do the same.

"It's exciting to be part of a team pushingfor promotion and if we can make it three win in my three games, I'll be veryhappy."

Admission to Trent Bridge is free fortomorrow's game against Cricket Victoria, which gets under way at 10.45am.
