THE STATISTICS

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting: Yorkshire beat Nottinghamshire by 7 wickets

THE TEAM NEWS

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE

Coach: Peter Moores

Captain: Steven Mullaney

  • Nottinghamshire come into this clash with Yorkshire in superb form having won all four matches so far as they sit top of the North Group, and their form at Trent Bridge continues to be outstanding as they have hit over 400 in both of their home games so far.

  • The club have organised a Family Fun Day for this encounter which means a full stadium is expected with over 14,500 attending so this promises to be a fantastic day of cricket which should only serve to motivate Notts even further.

  • Paul Coughlin and Ben Slater will miss out through injury so Chris Nash will continue to open in Slater’s absence but there is every chance they will name the same eleven that beat Leicestershire last time out where their top six batsmen all smashed half centuries.

YORKSHIRE

Coach: Andrew Gale

Captain: Steven Patterson

  • Yorkshire contrived to throw away another good position to tie their second match of the season against Derbyshire and they will have to improve significantly with the ball after having conceded 224/3 from just 22 overs in that match.

  • Tim Bresnan and Duanne Olivier were hit for 89 runs from their combined 7 overs and they will have to bowl better against this in-form Nottinghamshire batting line-up as they clearly miss Adil Rashid’s spin.

  • The club have allowed all-rounder Ed Barnes to join Sussex on loan for the rest of the One-Day Cup campaign and there is every chance they name an unchanged team unless they decide to bring Mathew Pillans back into the side.

THE PREDICTION

Nottinghamshire have been in superb form to start this One-Day Cup campaign having won all four matches so far and they are relishing playing at Trent Bridge which has seen two runfests so far. They will be keen to win the toss and bat first as they have done in both home matches so far and hit 417 and 433 so Yorkshire will want to snap that streak and bat first. Yorkshire have the quality in their batting to match Notts in that department but the home side’s bowling may give them the edge. Aussie fast bowler Pattinson could be the decisive player here and it will ultimately come down to which bowling attack can cope best with the onslaught and take early wickets. Notts have the form but do not rule out Yorkshire who have urgency on their side.
