Wisden says

Notts haven’t gained a red-ball match since June 2018 however their BWT Trophy marketing campaign (three attracts, two losses) was not less than an enchancment on a dismal 2019 Championship season, when the wheels got here off in dramatic vogue, shedding 10 of 14 matches after being tipped by many as title challengers.

In Clarke, Ben Duckett and Haseeb Hameed, they boast three of probably the most gifted younger batsmen within the nation, and the returning Brett Hutton provides nous to a seam assault which has lacked consistency however possesses firepower. The uncooked components are there, however the remaining product has been nicely in need of expectations for the previous three seasons.

Prediction
