Gareth Clough claims the Notts Outlawsbowlers must not be distracted by the threat of Lancashire's overseas starSanath Jayasuriya when the two sides meet at Trent Bridge on Saturday.

Twenty20 Cup North Group
June 23: Notts Outlaws v LancashireLightning
Start time: 2.40pm. Gatesopen at 12pm.
Tickets on the day cost £14 for adults and£7 for under-16s. A family ticket for two adults and two under-16s costs £35.

The opener has signed up for the Twenty20Cup with his international team-mate Muttiah Muralitharan called up by SriLanka.

And the 37-year-old veteran, who redefinedthe role of an opening batsman when he blazed his country to victory in the1996 World Cup, is bound to be a danger over the course of 20 overs.

But Clough said: "We'll have to suck it andsee against him. It's important that you're confident of being successful,whoever you're bowling to.

"Darren Lehmann is probably the bestbatsman I've had to take on in one-day cricket, but one player doesn't make ateam and we have plenty of people who Lancashire should be worried aboutthemselves."

Clough is the most experienced member ofthe Outlaws squad in Twenty20, with more appearances than any other player.

And the 29-year-old has stressed theimportance of winning at home to provide a platform for qualification for thequarter-finals.

He added: "We want to make it a case of'Fortress Trent Bridge' as we did last year. The weather needs to be good andthe crowds big. We had a good run last year and hopefully we can do exactly thesame this season."

Unchanged from the trip to Derby, with RyanSidebottom withdrawn at the request of the England selectors.
