Notts suffer Pattinson blow
Nottinghamshire will be without the services of seamer Darren Pattinson for tomorrow evening’s Friend’s Life t20 quarter-final against Hampshire due to a groin injury.
The 32-year-old suffered the problem during Sunday’s 88-run win over Scotland in the Clydesdale Bank 40, where he was restricted to only two deliveries with the new ball.
Pattinson’s place in the 13-man Notts squad looking to secure a finals day berth is taken by Jake Ball.
"Darren will be missed but this is a big opportunity for Jake, who has bowled extremely well in the Clydesdale Bank 40 this season," said Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell.
"We have maintained a very settled team throughout this competition, aside from enforced changes through England call-ups, and this change won't affect our game plan."
Adam Voges will assume captaincy duties from Chris Read for the shortest form once more and the Australian tops Nottinghamshire’s batting and bowling averages in this season’s competition.
