Duo fight for home comforts

All eyes will be on Trent Bridge tomorrow as Lancashire Lightning and Notts Outlaws do battle to secure a home Friends Life t20 quarter-final.

Both sides qualified for the next phase yesterday, the Red Rose by virtue of Derbyshire Falcons losing to Leicestershire Foxes and Notts on the back of a thumping triumph over Yorkshire Vikings.

The Outlaws, currently top of the North Group, have no new injury worries although Ajmal Shahzad may regain a place in the XI.

Durham Dynamos and Derbyshire could also reach the last eight as one of the best third-placed sides.

They meet tomorrow; both need victory to keep their hopes alive and must also hope future results go in their favour.

The visitors, buoyed by having Shivnarine Chanderpaul back in the ranks, face a tall order against a side that have won their last three games in the competition.

The action is rounded off by Leicestershire Foxes’ clash with Yorkshire, which is effectively a dead-rubber.
