FLt20 Outlaws do the double over the Bears


The Nottinghamshire Outlaws beat the Bears by 10 runs at Trent Bridge

Chris Woakes returned to the Warwickshire side for his first appearance of the season in the FLt20 at Trent Bridge, replacing Ant Botha as the only change from the side that lost to the Outlaws three days ago and his return was greeted by Wessels who hit his first delivery for six before Woakes got his revenge having him caught by Jim Troughton for seven.

A stand of eighty three between Alex Hales 67 and Adam Voges 39 was in danger of putting the match out of the Bears' reach until Stef Piolet bowled Voges and then the same bowler removed the best player in World T20 David Hussey for six.

Darren Maddy bowled Hales and then picked up Read's wicket to a Woakes catch before some late hitting from Samit Patel 37* took the Outlaws to a final total of 173-6 from their twenty overs.

Darren Patterson struck with his first ball when Chopra edged him to Read and after a couple of boundaries Fletcher bowled Porterfield 8 with the final ball of the second over.

Neil Carter followed lbw for seventeen missing an attempted sweep off Fletcher and when Maddy 28 returned a catch to Mullaneythe task was beginning to look beyond them.

Troughton drove Patel into the hands of Voges while Clarke followed miscuing Mullaney with the Bears 104-6

Chris Woakes played some aggressive strokes towards the end of the innings but the task was too great and despite him making forty four from just nineteen deliveries the Bears innings finally closed on 163-7 a losing margin of ten runs.
