Notts pip tourists despite Rahman heroics

Debutant Adam Tillcock played a winning hand as Notts Outlaws overcame a Ziaur Rahman-inspired Bangladesh by four wickets at Trent Bridge.

The hosts found themselves chasing a challenging total of 292 for seven, thanks largely to a blistering 104 not out from Rahman, featuring seven fours and as many sixes in only 69 balls.

Opener Shamsur Raham set the foundation for Bangladesh with 53 and added 84 for the third wicket alongside Mominul Haque, who made 47.

Veteran all-rounder Paul Franks captained Notts and was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3-56 before leading an unlikely victory charge alongside 19-year-old Tillcock.

Matthew Cross made 47 at the top of the order but the loss of regular wickets either side of his 60-run alliance for the fourth wicket with Sam Wood meant Notts were 118 for five in the 29th over when the latter was run out for 32 to bring Tillcock and Franks together.

Youth and experience combined magnificently as the Bangladesh attack was flayed to all parts.

Franks departed 10 balls from the end for 75 with the finishing line in sight, having struck nine fours and two maximums.

Tillcock was unbeaten on 97 when Brett Hutton – perhaps lacking a sense of occasion – struck the winning four with seven balls remaining.
