Spitfires squad to face Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge

Monday 17th August 2015

Men’s First Team

Kent Spitfires travel to Trent Bridge in a bid to bounce back on Monday from their last-ball NatWest T20 Blast exit by reaching the quarter-finals of the Royal London One-Day Cup (2pm start).

They face table-toppers Nottinghamshire Outlaws on Monday in the 50-over format, looking to qualify for the last eight of the tournament for a second successive season.

The Spitfires may require two wins from the Nottinghamshire match and the Warwickshire fixture at Edgbaston on Wednesday (2pm) to finish in the top 4 of Group B and secure a quarter-final spot.

Captain Sam Northeast says the team will use Saturday's defeat as inspiration for a return to winning ways in white-ball cricket.

The 25-year-old batsman, who recently signed a long-term contract extension, said: "There is no doubt we have a squad capable of going on and winning things in one-day cricket.

"We don't want to feel like this again, that's for sure. We need to use this as motivation."

Kent Spitfires squad:17 Sam Northeast (c), 23 Daniel Bell-Drummond, 6 Joe Denly, 20 Sam Billings (wk), 3 Darren Stevens, 30 Fabian Cowdrey, 10 Alex Blake, 26 Matt Coles, 15 James Tredwell, 5 Ivan Thomas, 8 Mitch Claydon, 14 Matt Hunn.

Notts Outlaws squad: Jake Ball, Dan Christian, Luke Fletcher, Harry Gurney, Alex Hales, Brett Hutton, Steven Mullaney, Samit Patel, Chris Read, Brendan Taylor, James Taylor, Riki Wessels.
