WHAT THEY SAID: Lancashire v Notts Outlaws
REACTION: Lancashire v Notts Outlaws
See what players from both camps had to say after the Royal London One-Day Cup clash between Lancashire and Notts Outlaws at Emirates Old Trafford, which saw the visitors win by 9 runs.
Lancashire captain Liam Livingstone said: "I'm delighted for Keaton and the way he played, but that's the way one-day cricket goes. We'd have backed ourselves with 10 overs left, but it's disappointing. The Notts bowlers bowled really well, and we knew the pitch was going to get tougher and tougher.
"The way we stacked our side with spinners, you could tell we thought the pitch was going to slow up.
"Fair play to Notts, they bowled well.
Nottinghamshire captain and man-of-the-match Steven Mullaney said: "I'm over the moon to get off with a win, but we still have a lot to improve on. That's a good thing - if we can get two points and still improve on a lot of things.
"We tried to get them above eight an over and back Harry, Jake and Luke at the end with our death bowling. If we can get it up there and make the batsmen take a risk, we feel like we're in the game, especially on a wicket that was deteriorating.
"Jake, Harry and Luke have played a lot of cricket now, and myself and Samit have as well. Billy Root also got an important wicket of Jordan Clark. It's good to have new faces in as well. It was nice to see Chris Nash get some runs after a tricky start in the Championship.
"To get up to 320 we were made up at half-time.
"We said anything above 300 we'd have been happy with, but it's a good job we got them extra 18.
"There was still quite a long time left in the innings, so it was nice for me to be able to give myself some time to get in. We tried to rotate the strike as much as possible and then, if there were boundary options, try to hit them."
"The way Harry (Gurney) bowled his change-ups, his cutters into the pitch worked really well. We could have done that better in the first innings, but it's the first game of the tournament and we have a lot of positives to take forward.
"We could have been a little bit better in the field here and there. If you keep them under 300, we win the game.
"But there's some very good points. Parky bowled well in the first innings and got five-for, and the way Keats played is very encouraging for us."
