Notts Outlaws continue their Royal London One-Day Cup campaign with a trip to Edgbaston to face Warwickshire on Tuesday 23 April 2019.
With two wins out of two Notts currently sit alongside Durham at the top of the ultra-competitive North Group.
Warwickshire are yet to find their best form, though were unlucky in their opening match. The Bears made 270 for 8, with Tim Ambrose making 77.
Yorkshire’s chase faltered as they slipped to 89 for five but the equation was eventually brought down to 20 needed from the final 10 deliveries and then two needed from two balls.
A scrambled bye was all the visitors could manage, leaving the scores tied and just one point for each side.
On Sunday the outcome wasn’t as close as Warwickshire went down by 194 runs at Northampton after being bowled out by the home side for only 164.
Warwickshire have enjoyed considerable one-day success over the years, winning 12 one-day titles, most recently in 2016 with success at Lord’s in the Royal London One-Day Cup.
Head To Head
Nottinghamshire have faced Warwickshire on 61 occasions in one-day cricket since the first John Player Sunday League clash in 1969.
There have been 32 victories for Notts, with the West Midlands’ side triumphing 24 times. Five matches have been lost to the weather.
All of the fixtures away have been staged at Edgbaston, where Notts have enjoyed their share of success over the years. They lead in the head-to-head clashes there by 15 wins to 13.
Notts have won the last two meetings at Edgbaston, in 2013 and 2017 and have not been beaten there since 2010.
Warwickshire won last year's match in Nottingham but prior to that, Notts had won six matches in a row.
A victory at Edgbaston was included amongst the highlights of the Outlaws successful Royal London One-Day Cup campaign in 2017.
The eventual winners overcame the Bears in the clash in early May, a fixture that saw Billy Root register his maiden hundred in Nottinghamshire colours.
Root scored an unbeaten 107, having shared in a punishing partnership of 159 for the fifth wicket with Steven Mullaney, who made 89.
Notts totalled 303 for six, which proved to be just enough after the Bears had threatened to chase down their target. Jonathan Trott scored 104 but once he had been dismissed by Mullaney, who took 3-66, the innings lost impetus and they finished 10 runs short on 293-7.
1982 | Basharat Hassan was unbeaten on 99 not out at the end of the Nottinghamshire innings against Warwickshire in a Benson and Hedges Cup match at Trent Bridge. It was one of only two instances of a Notts batsman making that score in List A cricket, Paul Johnson v Durham in 1996 being the other.
2014 | In a dramatic finale at Trent Bridge Notts Outlaws beat Warwickshire Bears by one wicket in Group B of the Royal London One-Day Cup. The outcome meant that both sides qualified for the quarter finals, although the win meant that Notts had home advantage in their last eight match. Jonathan Trott scored 108 and Tim Ambrose scored 98 as the visitors totalled 302-7. Luke Fletcher took 4-44. Notts replied with a centurion of their own as Alex Hales scored 104 from 90 balls with 12 fours and 3 sixes, sharing in a huge third wicket stand as he and James Taylor, who made 62, added 138 together. The match hinged on the final delivery of the evening. With the scores tied, Fletcher followed up his performance with the ball by driving Oliver Hannon-Dalby for the winning boundary, to the delight of the majority of the 4,000 crowd.
