Director of Cricket Mick Newell will name an unchanged team when Notts Outlaws face Durham Jets at Trent Bridge tomorrow evening (play starts 6pm).
Newell will demand more from his top order batsmen and seam attack after a disjointed performance against Worcestershire Rapids last time out.
“We left the middle order too much to do and didn’t execute our bowling plans last week which cost us,” said Newell.
“The nature of this format means that no team is going to win all 14 group matches but we need to make sure that we stick to the plan to give ourselves the best possible chance.”
Durham have returned to the north east to face Lancashire Lightning this evening in a quirk of the calendar that will see them return to Nottinghamshire on Friday morning.
Newell has highlighted their batting power as their strongest suit with a young bowling attack yet to establish firm credentials.
“Durham have some explosive hitters in Stokes, Stoneman and Mustard and great experience in Paul Collingwood,” he said.
“Their bowling attack is relatively inexperienced and we’ll be looking for our top order to get on top of them.”
Durham beat Worcestershire in their only NatWest T20 Blast fixture of the season so far with Scotland international Calum Macleod top-scoring with 80 off 56 balls.
Supporters have until midnight tonight to secure discounted tickets for the fixture.
Notts Outlaws team to face Durham Jets: Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, James Taylor, Samit Patel, Riki Wessels, Chris Read, Steven Mullaney, Sam Wood, Ajmal Shahzad, Andy Carter, Luke Fletcher
