Teams Preview

Northamptonshire Preview

This previous year’s quarterfinalist team has a lot of challenges to overcome in this season. With the absence of Paul Sterling in this team, it would be interesting to see if the Northants batting unit can deliver consistent performance. Northants are currently placed last in the North Group points table. They have lost their first match against Worcestershire and are still hunting for their first win in this season.

Richard Levi and Adam Rossington form the opening pair for this batting unit. With the absence of Paul Sterling this season, Richard Levi has to step up and take the responsibility to score well in the tournament. Ricardo Vasconcelos, Joshua Cobb, and Wayne Parnell form the batting middle order for this team. While Rob Keogh and Saif Zaib are responsible for the lower tail of this batting order. Although this team has a set of skilled batsmen, they have failed to impress in the tournament. The spin bowler Graeme White also has the capabilities to hit the bowl of out the park if required.

Ben Sanderson and Graeme White are the key bowlers of the Northamptonshire squad. Ben Sanderson was the leading wicket-takers for Northants in 2020. The presence of Wayne Parnell in this team adds to the strength of the bowling unit. Mohammad Nabi is another talented spin bowler in the Northants camp. If the form of all the bowlers in this team is quite well, they seem to have a formidable bowling attack.

Key Players: Richard Levi, Joshua Cobb, Wayne Parnell, Tom Taylor, Graeme White, Ben Sanderson, Mohammad Nabi.

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Richard Levi, Adam Rossington, Richardo Vasconcelos, Joshua Cobb (c), Wayne Parnell, Rob Keogh, Saif Zaib, Tom Taylor, Graeme White, Ben Sanderson, Mohammad Nabi.

Nottinghamshire Preview

The defending champions surely didn’t have an expected start to this tournament. They drew their first match against Worcestershire and lost their second match to Birmingham Bears. This has been a disappointing start for this team, and captain Steven Mullaney has the uphill task to win this match for their team.

The opening of pair of Alex Hales and Joe Clark is a crucial partnership for Notts. This batting unit heavily depends on the opening pair and a few batsmen in the lower middle order. Ben Duckett, Tom Moores, and Samit Patel form the middle order for this team. Ben Duckett scored his maiden fifty this season in the previous match against the Birmingham Bears. Samit Patel and Steven Mullaney have the responsibility to score runs at a higher strike rate in this batting unit.

Notts's primary bowlers this season are Luke Fletcher and Mathew Carter. The pace attack is led by Luke Fletchers, while the spin attack is led by Mathew Carter. Calvin Harrison, Samit Patel, and Dan Paterson provide this team with various bowling alternatives. With the capabilities to contribute with both bat and bowl, Samit Patel plays a crucial role for Nottinghamshire.

Key Players: Joe Clarke, Alex Hales, Samit Patel, Steven Mullaney, Mathew Carter

Nottinghamshire Predicted Playing XI:

Joe Clarke, Alex Hales, Ben Duckett, Tom Moores, Samit Patel, Peter Trego, Steven Mullaney (c), Luke Fletcher, Mathew Carter, Calvin Harrison, Dane Paterson.
