Nottinghamshire vs Kent 1st Quarter Final Match Preview
Spitfires skipper Sam Billings has been released from international duty to lead the side in the Royal London One-Day Cup against Nottinghamshire Outlaws at Trent Bridge on Thursday. His England colleague Jake Ball has also been made available to bolster the hosts’ pace attack to decide who travels to Worcestershire for the semi-final on Sunday.
It’s fair to say that after waiting patiently all season to make his senior Nottinghamshire debut, Matt Milnes was a tad nervous waiting at his mark to bowl his first ball at Taunton.
Knowing what was at stake as Peter Moores’ men battled with Somerset at the top end of Specsavers Division One, the 23-year-old seamer was, momentarily, like an anxious schoolboy about to start his first day at school.
