Outlaws on top after Falcons top order stumbles
The Nottinghamshire Outlaws hold the advantage against the Derbyshire Falcons after restricting them to a total of 152-7 despite a fine half century from Garry Park.
Having won the toss the Falcons got off to a disastrous losing 3 wickets in the space of 7 balls after Darren Pattison and Dirk Nannes tore through the home side’s top order.
Loots Bosman (2), Wes Durston (0) and Chesney Hughes (0) were all dismissed cheaply before Greg Smith (22) and Garry Park built a 4th wicket partnership of 48 to help the home side recover after such a poor start.
Smith was bowled by Steven Mullaney in the 8th over but Park remained at the crease to record a well deserved half century to lead the Falcons fight back.
Despite the wickets of Robin Petersen (6) and John Sadler (14) the Falcons will be happy with their recovery, and, thanks to Park (66) the home side will feel they have a total their bowlers can defend.
