05.08.2017… Notts v Durham…

Outlaws v Jets

Trent Bridge… Sat August 5th…

Outlaws won by 5 wickets

Ticket: £17

A day of records, made and missed…

Nottinghamshire scored 106/1 from the Powerplay, a T20 World Record. Whilst Alex Hales came within a 6 of equalling Chris Gayle’s world record for the fastest T20 century, being caught in the outfield by Stuart Poyter (when attempting that six), on 95 from 30 deliveries…

Earlier, Paul Coughlin and Ryan Pringle had pushed Durham towards a respectable total, adding 40 runs in the final two overs…

Durham’s bowling however, the first over summed it up. Usman Arshad was taken out of the attack after only two deliveries, both waist-high no balls. He was replaced by Paul Coughlin who then had to leave the field after only 5 balls following a nasty knock to the hand, Jack Burnham bowling the final delivery of the over…

Cameron Steel did have a hattrick opportunity though, at a point where the slogging appeared to have gone to the Outlaws’ heads……
