Head to Head | Essex Eagles v Notts Outlaws


Essex Eagles welcome Notts Outlaws to The Cloudfm County Ground tomorrow with both teams fighting for a place in the One-Day Cup Final at Lord’s.

The 1 July Final awaits the winner and the Eagles head into the match full of confidence following an excellent start to the season.

Chris Silverwood’s team have won five games in succession in the competition and are unbeaten at Chelmsford all season.

The recent meetings between the sides sit in the favour of Notts Outlaws though, as they have won six of the last eight meetings between the sides in the One-Day Cup.

Essex Eagles will be bolstered by the form of Alastair Cook who comes into the game having posted four successive scores of 50+ (109, 67*, 65 & 54) in the group stages.

Brendan Taylor recorded his highest ever List A score last time out for Notts Outlaws; his 154 helped his side claim a 24-run win over Somerset in the quarter final stages.

Ashar Zaidi and Varun Chopra look set to make their 100th appearance in List A cricket with the Essex duo currently on 99.
