Notts Outlaws bowler Stuart Broad has urged his teammates to adopt England's fearless approach when they begin their Friends Provident t20 campaign this week.

Speaking at Trent Bridge alongside Australian duo David Hussey and Dirk Nannes, Broad explained that a positive attacking mindset was the key ingredient of England's success.

"We adopted a fearless attitude during the World Twenty20 and we knew that we had the backing of the hierarchy and I'm sure we'll be doing the same thing at Notts," said Broad.

"I haven't played any cricket for a couple of weeks and I'm hugely excited by the Friends Provident t20 matches that I'll be playing in over the next few days.

"Momentum is key in Twenty20 cricket and we'll have a pretty clear plan to help us generate that."

Broad will be captained by David Hussey when the Outlaws face Derbyshire Falcons on Friday and Worcestershire Royals on Sunday in back to back matches at Trent Bridge.

Hussey has played alongside Dirk Nannes for Victoria and Australia and is blessed with an array of talent in the Outlaws' arsenal.

"I didn't enjoy losing the World Twenty20 final to England but what i saw was an England team built around four key players, three of which play for Notts," said Hussey.

"Mick Newell is a very shrewd judge of a cricket player and he has put together a squad packed with talent here. No batsman will enjoy facing Ryan Sidebottom, Stuart Broad and Dirk Nannes and they are all world class Twenty20 bowlers."

Dirk Nannes will become the first bowler to have taken 100 Twenty20 wickets if he can secure two more before Durham's Albie Morkel takes seven. Nannes won the Twenty20 Cup with Middlesex in 2008 and his presence is a major boost for Notts.
