Day 1 of 1
Nottinghamshire win by 88 runs

Notts vs Scotland

Notts see off Scots

Patel and Voges star in emphatic Outlaws win at Trent Bridge

Samit Patel: Top-scored with 82 for Notts

Nottinghamshire maintained their push for the Clydesdale Bank 40 semi-finals with a straightforward 88-run victory over Scotland at Trent Bridge.

Samit Patel led the way for the hosts with 82, while fellow England hopeful James Taylor contributed 68 and Adam Voges an unbeaten 64 as Nottinghamshire made 265-5 after winning the toss and batting first.

Patel then picked up 2-39 with his left-arm spin as Scotland were bowled out for 177, with fellow spinners Voges (3-37) and Graeme White (3-42) also among the wickets. Ryan Flannigan top-scored for the visitors with 38.

The win moves Nottinghamshire second in Group B, one point behind leaders Hampshire, who have played a game more.

After opting to bat first, Taylor and Alex Hales put on 82 in 12 overs for the second wicket for Notts, with Hales contributing 37 from 35 balls before he was stumped off the left-arm spin of Jean Symes.

Patel took his time to get going - with Nottinghamshire having a 10-over spell in the middle of their innings without a boundary - before the England all-rounder drove Majid Haq through the covers to release the shackles.

His partner Taylor was generally content to pick up singles in his 82-ball innings, ending when he top-edged an attempted reverse-sweep off Haq to backward point.

That brought Voges to the wicket, with the Australian taking advantage of the batting powerplay to race to 50 off just 35 balls in the penultimate over after Patel was yorked by Goudie, who also had Riki Wessels caught at deep square leg.

The Saltires were never in the hunt but also did not help themselves with two run-outs, although Josh Davey was unlucky to see Harry Gurney deflect Calum MacLeod's drive onto the stumps at the bowler's end.

Nottinghamshire overcame the setback of seeing seamer Darren Pattinson limp off the field after only two deliveries with a suspected groin strain, and the left-arm spin trio of Patel, Voges and White strangled the life out of the Scottish innings.
