Notts Outlaws’ Director of Cricket Mick Newell has called for more of the same when his charges take on Sussex at Trent Bridge in this evening’s Friends Provident t20 quarter-final (play starts 7.25pm).

Notts are unbeaten at Trent bridge having won seven and tied one of their group fixtures and must beat Sussex to progress to finals day at the Rose Bowl in August.

“We’re going into the game in a confident frame of mind because we’ve had a great week on the field,” said Newell.

“It’s a game we’re really looking forward to and the floodlights and knockout format will add to the excitement.

“Nothing will change tactically. We’ll need to maintain our fielding standards, back the bowlers and then it’s up to batsmen to perform.

“We’ll have a good chat about the strengths that Sussex possess but we have to concentrate on our own performance because we have played well at Trent Bridge throughout the competition.”

Newell will keep faith with what he considers to be his best eleven with Alex Hales opening alongside Ali Brown and Darren Pattinson, Ryan Sidebottom and Dirk Nannes leading the seam attack.

More than 6,300 tickets have been purchased in advance but supporters wishing to attend will be able to ‘pay on the day’ with tickets priced at £20 for adults, £10 for juniors and £50 for a family of four.

Notts Outlaws team to face Sussex Sharks: Alex Hales, Ali Brown, Matthew Wood, Samit Patel, David Hussey, Steven Mullaney, Chris Read, Graeme White, Ryan Sidebottom, Darren Pattinson, Dirk Nannes
