Opening batsman Ben Slater is expecting a good atmosphere from a capacity crowd for the East Midlands derby against Notts Outlaws at The 3aaa County Ground on Friday.
The Falcons are aiming to kick-start their Vitality Blast campaign against the 2017 champions Notts Outlaws, and the powerful left-hander hopes for a high-scoring contest.
A capacity crowd is expected for the local derby and the 26-year-old believes there is enough talent across both sides to make for a good game for supporters.
He said: “The main objective is to get the first win on the board. In the last game I think we bowled brilliantly, but didn’t have enough runs on the board.
“There are good players on both sides so if we get a good wicket it all bodes well for a good game tomorrow.
“I didn’t play in this game last year, but I played in the sell-out against Yorkshire at Chesterfield last year. The crowd were up for it against Lancashire, so it should be a good atmosphere.”
