NCCA Super 12s Preview

Nottinghamshire slow left-armer Fateh Singh will make his debut for Lincolnshire in Sunday’s National Counties T20 Super 12s tournament at Furness where they will face hosts Cumbria and Herefordshire.

It will not be Singh’s first taste of National Counties cricket as he was drafted in by Cornwall as a locum professional on the second day of their Championship match against Shropshire at Bridgnorth last summer after Alex Blake was called up by Kent.

Singh, 20, is a product of Trent College who represented England Under-19s between 2021 and 2022 and who has made 12 List A appearances for Nottinghamshire.

He has been added to Lincolnshire’s squad for Sunday’s Super 12s tournament which is one of four three team tournaments that will be held around the country to decide the four teams that will progress to Finals Day at Chester Boughton Hall on Sunday May 26.

Cumbria are missing Steven Croft, who has coaching commitments with Lancashire at his hometown club Blackpool this weekend.

Lancashire batter/wicketkeeper George Lavelle will replace Croft and make his National Counties debut.

Lancashire batter/off-spinner Harry Singh is again available for Cumbria duty this weekend but Kendal’s Evan Williams has club commitments.

Herefordshire are again missing seamer Roshan Venkataraman who has a side strain but Adam Hines is returns along with former Bradford/Leeds UCCE left-arm seamer Josh Holling.

Holders Staffordshire head to Manor Park at Horsford to face hosts Norfolk and Hertfordshire having being reinstated into the competition.

Staffordshire thought their title defence had ended when they suffered a double washout against Cumbria in their final group match at Carlisle but Northumberland breached the competition regulations by playing too many players with 40 or more first-class or List A appearances on the same day against Cheshire.

Former Northamptonshire slow left-armer Tom Brett, who would have missed the Cumbria double-header, is available this weekend and Zen Malik is back on Staffordshire duty after again playing for Glamorgan’s Second XI this week.

Norfolk batter Sam Arthurton will go into Sunday’s matches needing four runs to become only the second player after Oxfordshire’s Jonny Cater to score 1,000 runs in the T20 format.

Norfolk are still missing Josh Cobb and Freddie Fairey following their collision in the field two weeks ago. Fairey has undergone surgery on his nose this week and Cobb will not be allowed to play until the end of next week under the concussion protocols.

Hertfordshire’s squad includes a potential debutant in Harpenden’s 19-year-old slow left-armer Harry Seagrave.

Cornwall, beaten finalists last season, travel to Slough where they will face hosts Berkshire and Shropshire.

Cornwall have called up Werrington batter Mark Gribble but are missing the unavailable Callum Wilson.

Berkshire’s squad includes pace bowler Tommy Sturgess who played for Cornwall in last season’s Finals Day.

Toby Albert, who is not required by Hampshire this weekend, will instead play for Berkshire.

Former Oxfordshire all-rounder Ollie Currill is in line to make his belated debut for Shropshire after injury prevented from playing for his new county in the group stage.

Shifnal off-spinner Shaun Lorimer, whose only previous county appearance came in a T20 match against Northumberland last season, has been included in Shropshire’s squad but seamer Ben Roberts is injured.

Oxfordshire have home-produced Sussex pair Harrison Ward and Zach Lion-Cachet available for their Super-12s tournament at Great & Little Tew where they host Dorset and Cambridgeshire.

Dorset have included Hampshire batter Felix Organ in their 13-strong squad with Sam Young requiring 83 runs to reach 1,000 in the competition.
