The ongoing Royal London One-Day Cup is giving a glimpse on what sort of pitches can be expected for the World Cup 2019 starting in a month’s time. Nottingham’s Trent Bridge was once again amongst runs as the hosts posting 417/7 against Lancashire on the back of Joe Clarke’s 99-ball 139.
Steven Croft’s 82-ball 110 at the top and skipper Dane Vilas’ 100-ball 166 kept the visitors’ fight intact. James Pattinson trapped Vilas in front when Lancashire needed 25 runs from the last 20 balls for a historic win. The tail-enders couldn’t take them over the line as they managed just 13 runs after Vilas’ dismissal.
All the major stats and numbers record across the One-Day Cup games on Friday:
5 – Number of 400+ totals for Nottinghamshire in List A cricket; the joint 2nd most by any team. South African national team has six such scores while India’s national team and the New Zealand domestic team Central Districts also have five totals of 400+ in this format.
7 – The Trent Bridge in Nottingham has witnessed as many as seven 400+ totals in List A cricket including two such totals in the Notts-Lancs game. No other venue has even recorded five such totals. The New Wanderers in Johannesburg stands second in this list with four List A totals of 400+.
166 – The 166-run knock by Lancashire’s Dane Vilas is the highest individual score in List A cricket for Lancashire. Andre Crook’s unbeaten 162 is the 2005 season against Buckinghamshire is the only other 150+ score in List A cricket for Lancashire.
406/9 – The total of 406/9 by Lancashire is their maiden 400+ total in List A cricket. Their previous highest was 381/3 against Hertfordshire during the NW Bank Trophy game in 1999. This is also the 5th highest List A total by any team while chasing.
823 – The aggregate of 823 runs in this game is the 7th highest in a List A match and the 4th highest match-aggregate in a List A game on England soil. As many as ten List A games had an aggregate of 800+ but Trent Bridge is the only venue to have two such games. The game between Nottinghamshire and Northamptonshire in 2016 witnessed a total of 870 runs being scored here.
A record victory in Taunton:
264 – Somerset defeated Kent by a huge 264-run margin as they bowled out the visitors to 94 after posting 358/9 in their 50 overs. This is the biggest victory margin in a List A game between two first-class county teams. Surrey’s 257-run win against Gloucestershire during the defence of 498 in the 2007 season was the previous highest.
An expensive 6-wicket haul:
6/62 – Nathan Sowter of Middlesex conceded 62 runs in his 9.2 overs to claim a 6-wicket haul against Essex in Chelmsford. The 62 runs conceded by Sowter are the 8th most in a 6-wicket haul in List A cricket. This is also the 2nd costliest 6-fer in England and also the 2nd costliest 6-fer by an England player in List A. Simon Francis conceded 66 runs in 9.5 overs on his way through to an 8-wicket haul for Somerset against Derbyshire in 2004.
