Hussey and Patel lead Outlaws to third win

The Nottinghamshire Outlaws made it three wins in a row thanks to a 6 wicket victory over the Worcestershire Royals at Trent Bridge.

Set a total of 151 for victory the Outlaws got off to a slow start losing Alex Hales (15) and Ali Brown (21) early on before David Hussey and Samit Patel (59) built a 4th wicket partnership of 80 before Patel was dismissed by Steve Smith in the 13th over.

Despite the loss of Patel, Hussey (39) remained at the crease to see the outlaws home with a massive six to win the game.

Having won the toss the Royals decided to bat and although they lost a couple Phil Jaques (7) and Jack Manuel (12) inside the first 4 over they would have been satisfied with setting the Outlaws a competitive total.

With Jaques and Manuel back in the dugout the Royals were indebted to Moeen Ali who scored an impressive 67 from just 49 balls which included 4 fours and 4 sixes.

Daryl Mitchell offered Ali some support with a quick fire 31 top offer the Royals hope of snapping a two game losing streak.
