Match Details:


Date: 29/05/2023

Time: 23.00 PM IST

Venue:  Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street, Durham

TV: Sony Sports Network.

Durham’s Bold Beginning:

Durham’s tournament run has gotten off to a good start under Alex Lees’ leadership. They are now positioned second in the rankings with four points and an astounding net run rate of +2.590 after winning both of their previous games. Durham enters this match off of a convincing 28-run win over Yorkshire. Yorkshire was limited to 189/7 by Durham’s bowlers after setting a lofty 218-point target. After this magnificent performance, their confidence will surge when they face Nottinghamshire.

Success for Durham Depends on Key Batters and Bowlers:

The majority of the runs will be scored by Durham’s batting lineup, which will primarily rely on individuals like Graham Clark, David Bedingham, Oliver Robinson, captain Ashton Turner, and Michael Jones. Former England international Alex Lees, who is renowned for his upbeat attitude, will captain the team and open the batting. With players like Turner, Bas de Leede, David Bedingham, and Scott Borthwick in the roster, Durham has competent batsmen for this format. But because Matthew Potts and Mark Wood are currently on the England team, Durham will be without their services.

Durham Obstacle:

Nottinghamshire will take a swing at Durham’s starter and centurion, Graham Clark, early in the innings. Mullaney will instruct his bowlers to adopt an offensive stance due to Durham’s middle order’s unreliability. With a potent squad of batsmen and a dependable group of bowlers, Durham will be counting on these crucial individuals to make crucial contributions to the team’s success in the forthcoming games.

The Predominance of Nottinghamshire:

After dominating Durham in each of their previous encounters, Nottinghamshire will aim to continue that dominance over Durham this time around. Under Steven Mullaney’s leadership, they defeated Durham 2-0 in the final matchup.

Strengths of Nottinghamshire:

The varied bowling attack of Nottinghamshire is led by Mullaney, who employs up to seven bowlers. Important fast bowler Conor McKerr and seasoned all-arounder Samit Patel provide their lineup depth. Players like Mullaney and Lyndon James, who are in positions 6 and 7, haven’t consistently shown their capacity to finish runs, despite the fact that Patel now bats at position 8.
