Nottinghamshire Ready For Welsh Test

Nottinghamshire will host Glamorgan at Trent Bridge tomorrow in the clubs first home match of the County Championship Division Two campaign after a perfect winning start in Sussex last week.

The green & golds beat their hosts in Hove by ten wickets in a game that went to the early stages of the last session of day four on Sunday whilst Glamorgan hosted Durham in a game that ended in a draw.

Pace bowlers James Pattinson and Dane Paterson could both feature for the first time this season as the Australian and South African international are each included in the thirteen-man Notts squad.

Luke Fletcher sits this one out whilst Liam Patterson-White will be looking to continue his good run of form following his eight wicket haul with Brett Hutton likely to be beside the three Pat’s in the home sides bowling attack.

Speaking ahead of the match after a four wicket scalp of his own down south last week, Hutton said of his sides tactics to win this Easter weekend’s game “We have our meetings and we get our information from Analyst Kunny Manek about certain players and how to go about dismissing them.

“We know Labuschagne is a big wicket, but we focus on ourselves. It doesn’t matter who is batting, we are at Trent Bridge and we do things our way.

“We trust that everything we have done through the winter will pay off in terms of getting over the line, and hopefully we can get off to a winning start at home.”

Glamorgan will include current Australian international and world number one test batsmen Marnus Labuschagne for the first time this season as South African International Colin Ingram makes way, whilst Tom Cullen also drops out for the Welsh side.

Nottinghamshire XIII: Steven Mullaney (c), Joe Clarke, Ben Duckett, Joey Evison, Haseeb Hameed, Calvin Harrison, Brett Hutton, Lyndon James, Tom Moores, Dane Paterson, Liam Patterson-White, James Pattinson, Ben Slater.

Weather watch: Thursday is said to be clear and bright with highs of sixteen and it may even improve slightly on Friday with no real huge warning for rain on Saturday either. Sunday could potentially see some rain with a small chance of the covers coming on but it is predicted that mostly this weekend in Nottingham will be clear and cool.

Venue & time: Trent Bridge, Nottingham, Thursday 14th – Sunday 17th April 2022.
