Outlaws captain Dan Christian lauded Samit Patel for getting his side over the line in a nailbiting Vitality Blast quarter-final clash with Leicestershire Foxes at Trent Bridge.

The skipper says it was 'no surprise' that Patel delivered the goods once again in front of the Sky cameras as he 'loves the pressure' that comes with performing on the big stage.

A fourth Finals Day trip in five years now awaits the Outlaws on Saturday, with Lancashire their opponents in the semi-final.
