Andre Adams has been included in the Notts Outlaws squad to face Lancashire Lightning at Trent Bridge on Friday (play starts 6.30pm).

Director of Cricket Mick Newell will make a late call on the fitness of Andy Carter who has some back pain and has included both players in a 13-man squad.

"It will be a late call on Andy Carter because we need to see him bowl at full-tilt if we are going to include him," said Newell.

"Andre and Luke Fletcher haven't featured much in twenty20 cricket in recent seasons but that's mainly because we've been preserving them for four-day cricket and we have no qualms about playing them."

The top order has a familiar feel with Alex Hales and Michael Lumb set to open the batting in a top four that also features James Taylor and Samit Patel.

Steven Mullaney recovered a back strain to score a century for Nottinghamshire's Second Eleven and will feature.
