Notts Outlaws v Somerset Abandoned
Rain was the only winner as the Royal London Cup match between Notts Outlaws and Somerset at Welbeck CC was abandoned after just 21 overs.
Somerset Captain, Ben Green won the toss and elected to field. The visitors also gave a senior debut to 18-year-old seamer Ned Leonard.
Unfortunately, the players were forced from the field after just over an hour and a quarter, with the hosts on 92 for two from 21 overs. Further persistent showers then meant that no further cricket was possible.
Nottinghamshire lost Sol Budinger in the second over when the young opener hit Green straight to George Drissell at mid-on, and then Peter Trego’s hopes of doing some damage against his former team proved to be short-lived when he was trapped lbw by Sonny Baker. At this point Notts were 23 for two.
However, Ben Slater (42) and Matthew Montgomery (31) took the score to 50 at the end of the Powerplay and they had added 69 in 14.4 overs when the weather closed in.
Both teams take one point, which means Somerset have five points from three matches and Nottinghamshire have three from three in the early stages of the competition.
Our next match is on Sunday (August 1st) when we welcome Yorkshire to the Cooper Associates County Ground in the Royal London Cup.
This match will see Somerset County Cricket Club and 40 Commando Royal Marines come together for a special matchday activation.
As part of the day, the Royal Marine marching band will be in attendance, whilst their recruitment team and activation team will be on hand to provide a host of activities. There will also be a variety of combat equipment on display plus a number of combat demonstrations will take place in the fan village. The Royal Marine Cricket Team will also be hosting a reunion on the day.Back to News
