Sol Budinger stunned Derbyshire with a blistering 31-ball hundred as Notts chased down 205 with 25 balls to spare in the Second XI T20 North Group.

Batting at three, the destructive left-hander entered the fray in the first over after the early loss of Joey Evison, and struck 13 sixes on his way to a match winning 114, stealing the limelight away from Ben Slater who himself contributed a rapid-fire 64 from 37 deliveries. 

Budinger had been impressive with the ball, too, as Derbyshire mounted a formidable total, conceding 25 from his three overs, while Liam Patterson-White snared two wickets on a pitch suited to pace off. 

Having won the toss, Derbyshire made a quick start with the bat, and climbed to 70 before Budinger had Anuj Dal caught by Ben Compton on the penultimate ball of the powerplay for 28. 

Academy graduate duo Patterson-White and Lyndon James paired to further halt the Derbyshire momentum, the former taking the wicket of Tom Wood for 50 before the latter had Mitchell Wagstaff caught by Evison in the 13th over. 

Patterson-White got his second an over later, Harvey Hosein gifting Ben Compton his third catch with the hosts on 135.

Mattie McKiernan added 32 off 18 with an impressive cameo alongside Oskar Kolk, who himself contributed 27, as Derbyshire accelerated in the latter stages of their allocated overs, 70 runs coming from the final 39 deliveries. 

Budinger made light work of the reply, however, easing himself in for two deliveries before launching Cohen for three sixes in the second over and dismissing Ben Hutchinson for four sixes in the fourth. Thirteen minutes after arriving at the crease, he had his fifty.

Slater batted with fluency when given the opportunity, but the Australian-born batsmen inflicted the majority of the damage as the visitors cruised to 94 at the end of the powerplay, and the pair had added 147 by the time Budinger was dismissed in the 11th over having faced just 38 bals.

With Notts requiring 56 more for the victory, left-hander Slater assumed control and pressed on himself, bringing up his fifty off 33 balls to steer the Green and Golds towards victory with James for company. 

When Slater departed, Nottinghamshire required just 14 from 36 deliveries, a task completed within 11 with James and Patterson-White at the crease.
