Nottinghamshire Outlaws will welcome Derbyshire Falcons in their fourth match of NatWest T20 Blast 2016. The latest Nottinghamshire Outlaws v Derbyshire Falcons betting tips for this NatWest encounter can be checked below.
After losing the first two matches in their campaign, Nottinghamshire Outlaws finally got themselves a breakthrough last week, clinching their first win and opening the points tally. However, it may appear that luck has favored the hosts a bit in that victory.
Batting second against Lancashire Lightnings, they had a target of 185 to win. Their bowling was less than impressive, as they picked up only four wickets, with majority of them proving to be quite costly. When they came to bat, they started off well with a couple of half centuries by the opening pair of Michael Lumb and Riki Wessels.
After that however, they lost their momentum and went on collapsing like dominoes. In the end, they managed to see themselves through, as they won the game by two wickets.
As for Derbyshire, they have won two games already so far, which gives them a slight psychological advantage as they head in this match. They hosted Leicestershire last week, where they won by four wickets. They did a tremendous job with the ball, as James Neesham and Shiv Thakor took three wickets each to restrict the visitors to just 120 runs. Despite such an easy target, they did fumble initially, but ended up winning by the 19th over.
The hosts, despite being the underdogs here, will have a huge boost for this match. Andre Russell has been brought in to the squad and his presence is something which will definitely bring in a lot of momentum. But Derbyshire have a better record so far, but their fumbling in the last match may be a bit of trouble for them. This is surely going to be an intriguing one to watch.
