Nottinghamshire’s group opponents for next season’s Clydesdale Bank 40 competition has already been decided, with the ECB conducting the draw in the wake of this year’s final at Lord’s.

Warwickshire, defeated by Hampshire on Saturday, by virtue of losing fewer wickets, will join the Outlaws in Group A in 2013.

Also making up the group will be Kent, Northamptonshire, Worcestershire, Sussex and the Netherlands.

Dates for playing the matches won’t be confirmed until the release of the full domestic schedule, which is likely to be in November.
