Liam Patterson-White impressed with both bat and ball on his T20 debut despite Lancashire Lightning prevailing by six wickets in the Vitality Blast at Trent Bridge.

The left-arm spinner produced an excellent display of late-order hitting as he crashed an unbeaten 44 to help the Outlaws post 153/8 from their 20 overs.

Jack Haynes made a classy 45 earlier in the innings as the Outlaws recovered from 58/4 at the halfway stage of their batting effort.

Patterson-White was also the pick of the bowlers with figures of 1-22 from his four overs but Keaton Jennings led the Lancashire chase with 64 from 49 deliveries as his side won with nine balls to spare.

The hosts’ innings began in stuttering fashion as both Joe Clarke and Will Young departed inside the opening two overs with seven runs on the board.

The Outlaws captain was run out by Luke Wells without scoring after a mix up with Alex Hales while New Zealand international Young was caught behind by Matty Hurst for one to give Saqib Mahmood his first wicket.

Jack Haynes, in at four, scored Notts’ first boundary midway through the third over with a clip to the fence down at fine leg, as he offered some resistance to the Lancashire bowling attack.

Hales became the third wicket to fall when the 35-year-old sliced Mahmood to deep backward point where Jack Blatherwick took the catch.

The powerplay saw the Outlaws post 26/3 before Haynes upped the ante, slog sweeping debutant Jack Morely for six at the start of the eighth over before majestically hitting the same bowler for another maximum straight down the ground.

After Matthew Montgomery fell victim to Wells, Haynes and Lyndon James anchored proceedings, adding 32 for the fifth wicket before James was bowled by Chris Green for a run-a-ball 13.

Lancashire were then gifted the wicket of Haynes for 45 who was run out by Mahmood after attempting a single with Tom Moores.

That brought Laim Patterson-White to the crease for the first time in T20s and he took his opportunity with both hands, despite facing just 21 deliveries.

The 25-year-old brought up the Outlaws hundred with a pulled six over the deep backward point boundary and then struck three fours and a six during the 16th over.

Tom Moores and Calvin Harrison both lost their wickets in quick succession, but Olly Stone provided support to Patterson-White who finished the innings with two consecutive sixes to help his side post 153/8 with 62 runs coming from the last five overs.

In reply, Stone made a fast start with the ball as he removed Wells for six, caught by Young, with his first delivery.

Josh Bohannon followed 14 balls later when he was caught by Haynes for 17 off the bowling of Montgomery.

Tom Bruce became Patterson-White’s first T20 wicket when he was bowled for 22 but the efforts of Jennings, bowled by Harrison for 64, and Hurst (33 not out) saw Lancashire over the line.
