Samit Patel is going to need a bigger mantelpiece.
The Notts Outlaws all-rounder has managed a nigh-on clean sweep of the silverware this summer and his performance at NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day earned him a man of the match award in the final to add to a growing collection.
This was a key moment.
Birmingham Bears’ young left-handed opener Ed Pollock hit a spectacular 50 from 27 balls in the first semi-final and was key to whether his side could chase the Outlaws’ 190 to win the final at Edgbaston.
Samit’s direct hit from short fine-leg ensured Pollock would not get his chance for repeat heroics. Eagle eye-eyed spectators may note that the Notts’ man throws right handed despite bowling with his left.
