manipulated the bowling at will.
Duckett’s second 50 of the competition came from 28 deliveries and Nash, playing the 500th match of his career across all formats, struck five boundaries and a six.
Earlier, the evening couldn’t have got off to a better start for the hosts, with an important breakthrough from the first ball of the contest. Wayne Madsen, promoted to open against a battery of different spin options, swept Imad Wasim into the hands of Duckett on the leg side fence.Leus du Plooy and Luis Reece each made only five as the Powerplay overs only produced 29 runs.
Godleman held the middle order together but only three other players reached double figures; Critchley, Anuj Dal and Brooke Guest, who hit three boundaries in a spirited final couple of overs.The contest was a quiet affair for Samit Patel; who wasn’t required to bat but took 2 for 26 from his four overs on the evening that he reached 100 consecutive T20 appearances for the Outlaws.His current run of matches began in July 2012 and he has now featured in 186 domestic matches, six more than nearest rivals, Ryan ten Doeschate and James Hildreth.
Notts had gone into the contest knowing that they had already secured their tenth quarter-final appearance in 11 seasons and can guarantee home advantage at that stage if they win either of their remaining matches, at Leicester on Friday evening or at home to Durham on Sunday.Derbyshire used nine different bowlers during the evening and remain at the foot of the table with only one victory. They close out a disappointing campaign with a weekend trip to face Yorkshire Vikings in Leeds.
