Cricket World Player of the Week - Samit Patel
Nottinghamshire’s Samit Patel is this week’s Cricket World Player of the Week
Samit Patel’s masterful century saw Nottinghamshire chase 326 to beat Northamptonshire by just one wicket at Wantage Road to secure a home semi-final in the Royal London One-Day Cup by winning the North Group.
At 116 for 5 in the 25th over, Notts were slipping to defeat but Patel made a career-best unbeaten 136 not out to bring the Outlaws home with three balls to spare in front of a bumper Bank Holiday crowd.
