Notts Outlaws play their second match inside 48 hours when they continue their Vitality Blast campaign with a home fixture against Yorkshire Vikings at Trent Bridge on Sunday afternoon (25 August 2019, 3.30pm start).
The Outlaws will be looking to build on Friday evening’s victory over Leicestershire Foxes as they challenge the White Rose on home territory.
Notts currently sit third in the North Group, on 13 points from 11 fixtures. Yorkshire gained their second win of the campaign in beating Durham on Friday and arrive in Nottingham in seventh spot on 9 points.
Yorkshire are led this season by former Worcestershire batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore. His team includes David Willey, who took a hat-trick in the 2013 final against Surrey, whilst playing for his former county, Northants.
Notts won the domestic T20 in 2017, whilst Yorkshire’s best season came in 2012 when they were defeated in the final.
Head To Head
There have been 31 previous meetings in domestic T20 cricket between Notts and Yorkshire.
The majority of the wins have come to Notts, with the Outlaws having claimed 18 successes. Yorkshire have won on 10 occasions, with 3 matches lost to the weather, including this season’s scheduled contest at Headingley.
Of the 15 matches played at Trent Bridge there have been 11 home successes, including each of the last 3 contests. Yorkshire have triumphed on only four occasions.
Tom Moores made the highest score of his T20 career in last year’s fixture at Trent Bridge. The wicketkeeper-batsman blitzed a quickfire 80 not out as Notts blew their visitors away after opting to bat first.
Batting at four in the order Moores scored his runs from only 49 balls, hitting six fours and three sixes as the Outlaws rattled up an impregnable 212-5 from their 20 overs. Jake Libby also enjoyed his best performance with the bat in the shortest format, scoring 58 from only 33 balls, with five fours and two maximums.
Yorkshire were still in the hunt at 102-1 after 12 overs but the spin duo of Samit Patel and Ish Sodhi removed David Willey and Tom Kohler-Cadmore in quick succession and the innings subsided dramatically.
Harry Gurney took 3-24 as the innings petered out, before closing on 149-7, leaving Notts victorious by 63 runs.
The first meeting in T20 competition between the two sides was in 2003, the inaugural season. At Headingley, the man-of-the-match award went to Yorkshire’s Michael Lumb, who played a brutal knock of 55 from 26 balls, with 4 fours and 5 sixes.
For good measure, he followed it up with bowling figures of 3-0-32-3, dismissing Kevin Pietersen, Bilal Shafayat and Will Smith.
Yorkshire won the 2008 meeting at Trent Bridge by 9 wickets but then found themselves deducted 2 points for fielding an unregistered player, Azeem Rafiq.
