Notts vs Holland

Yorkshire Bank 40: Samit Patel stars in Nottinghamshire win

Samit Patel and James Taylor: Made key contributions for Nottinghamshire

Ajmal Shahzad: Claimed three wickets to help bowl out Holland

Nottinghamshire maintained their perfect record in Group A of the Yorkshire Bank 40 with an 89-run triumph over Holland at Trent Bridge.

The hosts compiled a total of 263-5 after being put into bat and then dismissed their opponents for 174 to make it five wins from five so far in the competition.

James Taylor top-scored with 75 at number three in the order after the Outlaws had been given a fast start by Michael Lumb, who blasted 54 from 45 deliveries.

Lumb put on 60 with opening partner Alex Hales (21) before perishing himself with the score on 82, bowled playing an attacking shot to Pieter Seelaar.

Superb stand

However, Taylor combined with Samit Patel to put on a superb stand of 112 in 18 overs, the latter contributing 61 from 67 balls before becoming Seelaar's second wicket of the innings.

Taylor eventually fell to Tom Cooper and although the same bowler sent back Riki Wessels, Nottinghamshire skipper Chris Read and Steven Mullaney plundered 29 in the final three overs.

The Dutch simply never came close in reply, Ajmal Shahzad taking 3-26 to leave the score at 52-5 by the end of the 14th over.

The one real highlight of the Netherlands' innings came from Dom Michael, the 25-year old left-hander from Queensland making an unbeaten 59.

Peter Borren (21) offered some support but Jake Ball, Graeme White and Patel all picked up two wickets apiece to see the visitors bowled out at the start of the 39th over.
