The table-toppers in the first week of the T20 Blast, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire will lock horns for the first time this season. Both the teams have three points to their name after two matches with on each being washed out. Yorkshire are at the top of the table on the basis of the net run-rate. They thumped the Derbyshire in the only game they played by 99 runs.
Nottinghamshire, on the other side, chased down 182 runs in only 17th over thanks to a scintillating 100* off 44 deliveries from Joe Clarke. Both the sides have some explosive batsmen up their sleeves and it is expected to be a cracker of a game.
Trent Bridge is very small on one side and runs generally flow at the venue. The bowlers have to come up with different variations else they will smashed all across the park. Expect the team winning the toss to bowl first.

Alex Hales is a top batsman in the shortest format of the game. He only scored 11 runs in the last game against Durham but Hales can never ignored.
Jos Clarke is in-form batsman for Nottinghamshire at the moment. Batting at three in the last outing, he scored an unbeaten 100 off just 44 deliveries with seven fours and eight sixes. Expect him to continue his swashbuckling hitting in this match as well.
Adam Lyth was at his brutal best opening the innings for Yorkshire against Derbyshire. He smashed 61 off just 32 balls with six fours and three sixes and helped the team get off to a quick start.
Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, both the teams have solid batting line-up which indicates that this will be a high-scoring game. However, the bowling attack will certainly make the difference and the fact that the Notts are playing at home will benefit them.
