Darren Pattinson made light work of the Derbyshire top order as Notts Outlaws cruised to victory at the County Ground.

Pattinson reduced the Phantoms to 36-3 and Andre Adams and Paul Franks were also amongst the wickets as the home side limped to 114-8 from their 20 overs.

Charlie Shreck, Mark Ealham and Samit Patel also produced economical performances before opening batsmen Will Jefferson and Adam Voges took control of the game.

The pair put on 84 for the first wicket, Voges hitting eight fours on his way to 45 before he was bowled after missing with a wild swipe.

Jefferson went for 43 and it was left to Samit Patel (11) and Chris Cairns (17) to secure a satisfying eight wicket victory with three overs to spare.

“It was a convincing win and a very professional all-round performance,” said Jefferson.

“It’s great to have produced a big partnership with Adam and from a personal point of view I’m happy to be helping the team get into good positions.

“We’ve got momentum and confidence and we’re stepping in the right direction.”

Notts face Lancashire Lightning at Trent Bridge on Sunday with play commencing at 2:30pm.
