ross whiteley, who was part of the 13 man squad chosen for the nottinghamshire match, is also included.

wicket-keeper joe dodd will come into the side with the 25-year-old taking over behind the stumps from joe clarke.

coach alex gidman’s side will be looking to add to their three run triumph against the bears and bolster their chances of reaching the knockout stages.
