THE TEAM NEWS

NOTTS OUTLAWS

  • Notts Outlaws were denied the chance to claim a home quarter-final as their game with Worcestershire Rapids was abandoned without a ball being bowled but they are still in a strong position to achieve their goal.
  • Whilst the Outlaws will have been frustrated by the weather, it did also prevent the Rapids from overhauling them and keeps their fate in their own hands with a game on home soil against Durham Jets.
  • Notts have named an unchanged squad for this game and the extra couple of days without a game following the abandonment against Worcestershire should mean that Imad Wasim is fit and raring to go after his injury.

DURHAM JETS

  • Durham Jets will miss out on the knockout stages of the t20 Blast after their form deserted them at the business end of the group stage which will come as a big disappointment to the county.
  • D’Arcy Short continued his impressive tournament as he contributed another half-century to take his tally to four in this year’s Blast and has now 447 runs to his name with only two men scoring more than him in the entire competition so far.
  • With their fate sealed, Durham may look to bring in some fresh faces for this final game and are likely to rest anybody who is carrying a knock with a return to red ball cricket on the horizon.

THE PREDICTION

Notts Outlaws are in pole position to secure a home quarter-final but they will want to ensure it with a win in their final group game. They host the already eliminated Durham Jets at Trent Bridge and having won their last three games that have seen a result, they will fancy their chances. The visitors are also lacking form having lost the last three games that they have played and with that respective form coupled with Notts’ need to win, they can do enough to seal their home tie in the last-eight.
