County cricket preview 2019: Nottinghamshire

by Wisden Staff 4 minute read

We take a look at Nottinghamshire, who have signed some young, exciting English talents ahead of the upcoming 2019 county cricket season.

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club

Captain: Steven Mullaney (Championship and 50 over), Dan Christian (T20)
Last season: CC1: 6/8; RL50: QF; T20: QF
Transfers in: Zak Chappell (Leics), Joe Clarke (Worcs), Ben Duckett (Northants), Ben Slater (Derbyshire), James Pattinson (Aus)
Transfers out: Will Fraine (Yorkshire), Matt Milnes (Kent), Billy Root (Glamorgan), Riki Wessels (Worcs), Ben Kitt (released)


Stick on: Steven Mullaney

Mullaney is Notts’ captain in four-day and 50-over cricket

Aged 32, the all-rounder is seemingly getting better by the season and was deservedly called up for the England Lions tour of India this winter. As skipper, top-order batter and canny medium-pacer, he’s never been more important to his team’s cause.

Wildcard: Zak Chappell

Chappell has moved over from Leicestershire

A fast-bowling all-rounder lured from Leicestershire, England and Notts have high hopes for the 22-year-old who impressed in difficult conditions during the England Lions tour of India.


CC1: 3/8; RL50: Runners-up; T20: SF

After earning promotion and winning both white-ball trophies in 2017, Notts avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth last year but have made a quartet of exciting signings to bolster their squad for this campaign. Joe Clarke, firmly on England’s radar, is the pick of the bunch. A well-balanced squad will be pushing for silverware on all fronts.
