Riki Wessels will keep wicket under the captaincy of Adam Voges when Notts Outlaws face Welsh Dragons at Trent Bridge on Monday (play starts 1.45pm).
“We’ve rested Michael and Chris because they have had a heavy workload throughout the season.” Mick Newell
The match will see James Taylor make his return to action following his Test debut for England against South Africa.
Michael Lumb and Chris Read have been rested for the fixture giving Neil Edwards a chance to build on good second eleven form with a place in the opening partnership.
Harry Gurney also returns from injury with Scott Elstone batting at number five.
“We’ve rested Michael and Chris because they have had a heavy workload throughout the season,” said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.
“We need to see Harry bowling before that game as well and Neil Edwards will have a role to play when our England players disappear.”
Neither side can qualify for the knockout phase of the competition.
Notts Outlaws team to face Welsh Dragons: Alex Hales, Neil Edwards, James Taylor, Adam Voges, Scott Elstone, Riki Wessels, Steven Mullaney, Graeme White, Darren Pattinson, Jake Ball, Harry Gurney
