Matt Montgomery hit 87 and Liam Patterson-White a career-best unbeaten 62 to help Notts Outlaws launch their Royal London Cup campaign with a 65-run victory over Sussex Sharks at Trent Bridge.

Despite a sticky start, Outlaws posted 290 for seven from their 50 overs after left-arm spinner Patterson-White had hit three sixes in his 46-ball knock, which comfortably beat his highest score of 27 in his debut season in 2021.

Patterson-White then combined with bowler Dane Paterson to silence Sussex’s most dangerous weapon, taking a stunning catch at square leg to remove Indian batting star Cheteshwar Pujara for just nine as Sussex were bowled out for 225 in 44 overs, Brett Hutton taking three for 24.
