Nottinghamshire Preview

After their dream run that saw them winning five consecutive games, it was a poor outing for Steven Mullaney’s side in the last game against Worcestershire. They were bowled out for 121 runs but did well while bowling. The skipper would want his side to put this disappointment behind when they play the next game. 

Chris Nash played well for his 50 but the rest of the batting didn’t score many runs. But the side has a good batting line-up with Joe Clarke, Steven Mullaney and Tom Moores having done well. They would expect the likes of Lyndon James and Jake Libby to do well in the next game and win it for the side.

It was spirited bowling from Matthew Carter and Samit Patel in the last game which was good to see. The side has bowled well this season with Jake Ball having been among the wicket-takers. Luke Fletcher’s return will strengthen their bowling. They are likely to challenge Durham batting in the next game with their disciplined bowling which they have shown in earlier games.

Nottinghamshire Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Nash, Joe Clarke, Lyndon James, Jake Libby, Samit Patel, Steven Mullaney (c), Tom Moores (wk), Paul Coughlin, Luke Fletcher, Matthew Carter, Jake Ball

Durham Preview

It was a close game against Lancashire in the last game that Cameron Bancroft’s side lost. But the skipper would have been proud of the effort of his bowlers who took the game close after they had put up a mediocre score on the board. The captain would want his players to put up a strong fight and top the points table for the North Group.  

Alex Lees made a wonderful hundred in the last game scoring more than half the runs for his side. Others like Michael Richardson and skipper Cameron Bancroft have also done well. The side would expect a better show from the likes of openers Scott Steel and Graham Clark in the next game.

It was a good bowling performance from the new ball bowlers Matt Salisbury and Matty Potts in the last game that saw them take the game close. Ben Raine and Liam Trevaskis also supported them well. James Weighell's presence will make them a tough attack to score against in the upcoming game.

Durham Predicted Playing XI:

Michael Richardson, Alex Lees, Ben Raine, Cameron Bancroft (c & wk), Graham Clark, Matt Salisbury, Jack Burnham, James Weighell, Matty Potts, Liam Trevaskis, Scott Steel

Weather Conditions

It will be a clash of the two best sides in the North Group in the next game of the Royal London One-Day Cup 2019 at Gorse Lane, Grantham. Hosts Nottinghamshire has lost just one game so far in the season which came in their last game against Worcestershire. Durham hasn’t been too far behind with two losses so far in the six games they have played in the season. 

The two sides have shared a good rivalry in this format over the last few seasons. But Nottinghamshire goes into this game with a better bowling line-up and it would be interesting to see if Durham are able to match up to this challenge and win the game.

Toss: To Bowl

There are predictions for rain in the game and the overcast conditions would make batting difficult at the start of the innings. Given the pitch’s character and weather conditions, the team winning the toss should have no hesitation in bowling first on this surface. 

This is the game that could very well decide the table toppers for the North Group. Nottinghamshire has had a wonderful season so far apart from the last game that they lost and currently sit on the top of the points table. Durham has also done well so far winning four out of its six games. While there is little to choose between the two sides at the moment Nottinghamshire due to their better bowling attack shall have the edge in this game.
