Nottinghamshire 182/2-181 Surrey (Royal London One Day Cup Group A) 23.08.22
Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club have qualified for the knockout stages of the Royal London One Day Cup after an impressive eight wicket win over Surrey at Welbeck Colliery.
On an overcast day in North Notts, captain Haseeb Hameed won the toss and elected to field, with South African international Dane Paterson making his 100th List A appearance.
Toby Pettman bowling the first over of the day took just nine balls to get his maiden wicket for Notts as Surrey skipper Ben Geddes went for just two with the visitors 4/1 midway through over number three.
Steel followed again to Pettman, edging to James at slip before Brett Hutton, hero at Leicestershire over the weekend with seven wickets, scalped Ryan Patel with the Londoners 14 for 3.
Surrey added another seventeen runs before Josh Blake edged to Schadendorf at wicketkeeper again off Hutton and the hitman had his man again, this time Gumbs edging behind for the Doncaster born bowlers third wicket of the match.
Nico Reifer and Tom Lawes combined to double the away sides miserable start before Liam Patterson-White caught and bowled Reifer on 18 for the days sixth wicket with still less than 100 on the board for Surrey.
A resurgent spell saw Lawes and Nick Kimber combine to take the tally past 150 before Lawes became a third victim for Pettman with 168 on the scorecard. The impressive 19 year old in the end out for 75.
Kimber was next, Fateh Singh bowling straight through to knock over the timber, McKerr lasted an over before being caught by Hutton for Pettman’s fourth match wicket whilst LPW closed the innings with an lbw as Matt Dunn fell fall to the Sunderland born spinner Patterson- White.
In response, an easy looking tally to target was whittled over in relatively fast time.
Ben Slater and Sol Budinger getting Notts off to a fast start before the latter fell to Lawes on 36.
Slater and Lyndon James helped the score along to touching distance, Slater reaching his fifty in 62 balls before James reached his milestone in even less, eventually falling for 52 with Notts 160/2 little over half-way into their chase.
That left Slater and Hameed to wrap things up with more than 18 overs to spare. Slater not out for 82 whilst Hameed on six, ensured Notts will face Lancashire on Friday at Blackpool in the quarter finals of a competition, hosted this year at Trent Bridge, which they last won in 2017.
