With travel restricted due to pandemic, Durham appears to be the side most affected by the absence of overseas players. Their absence was well and truly apparent in their first match of the tournament as faced a heavy loss at the hands of Lancashire. As the Durham Jets face Nottinghamshire Outlaws in their upcoming, things are not going to get easier for them. The match between Durham Jets and Nottinghamshire Outlaws is to be played on 29th August 2020 at Emirates Riverside, Chester-le-Street.
Durham Jets had a middling tournament last year and will be looking to improve on that. Despite the presence of and superb contribution by their overseas contingent, Durham Jets fell a couple of wins short of the numbers of win required to qualify for the knocks. Now, without the likes of D'Arcy Short and Peter Handscomb, doing so certainly be a huge challenge for them.
Scoring 483 runs at an average just under 44 and picking up 13 wickets as well, D'Arcy Short was the prime player in the Jets' lineup. He provided them with regular breakthroughs and scored at a scintillating rate at the top. Owing to that, the balance he brought to the team was impeccable, and finding his replacement won't be an easy task for Durham Jets.
The Jets have a young prospect who matched D'Arcy Short neck and neck last year. Scott Steel scored 369 runs in total at a remarkable pace last year. In addition to that, he picked up five crucial wickets with his accurate off-spin deliveries. With D'Arcy Short absent, he will have huge opportunity to prove himself as a like-for-like replacement of D'Arcy Short.
While Scott Steel will be an important player for the Jets, his lack of experience at the top level could be a concern. His opening partner, Alex Lees, will have take the initiative to not only get Durham to good starts, but also to mentor Scott Steel. Alex Lees has been in exceptional form in Bob Willis and his 51-run knock against Lancashire should act as an inspiration for the team.
Durham didn't have a good start to the tournament, but still had a few positives to take from their match against Lancashire. Alex Lees looked in phenomenal touch and the fact that they managed to get within touching distance of Lancashire's total despite losing early wickets speaks volumes about the depth of their batting. Their bowling, however, didn't prove sharp enough to trouble Lancashire. Rimmington had seven bowlers bowl in the opening match and only three tasted success. It will be imperative for the Jets to improve their bowling if they want to make a mark in this edition of T20 Blast.

The Outlaws were one of the best teams last year and their knock-out finish proves that. They had four of their matches washed-out due to rain and still managed to qualify for the playoffs. However, they will still be ruing their collapse against Worcestershire Rapids in the semi-final, the collapse that cost them a finals day spot.
Given their form in the shortest version of the game over the years, Nottinghamshire would have been keenly waiting for the competition to begin. In Alex Hales, they have one of the fiercest hitters of the ball in English Cricket. He contribution with the bat last year proved to be of immense significance in Nottinghamshire's road to the knockouts. Hales scored a total of 418 runs in ten innings at a strike-rate of 140.26.
The Notts have a batting lineup that has class throughout. Alex Hales, Chris Nash, Joe Clarke, and Ben Duckett are few of the most experienced players in the shortest format of the game in England. They all can win the match on their own on their day. Having said that, Dan Christian is likely to be missed in this side. He acted as a fulcrum between batting in the bowling and with him unable to join due to the pandemic, balancing the team as well could be difficult.
The injury to Harry Gurney, who will not only miss the tournament but also the IPL, is certainly a huge setback for the Notts. Gurney was their most successful bowler last year with 22 wickets to his name and his absence will certainly leave a massive void to be filled. They have experienced bowlers available in Steven Mullaney and Samit Patel, but getting twenty good overs could prove to be difficult. Despite all that, Nottinghamshire is an immaculately balanced side, and should not have much difficulty in building on their consistent run in the shortest format of the game.

The surface at Chester-le-Street is an absolute paradise to bat on. There is even carry through to the wicket-keeper and quickness in the surface.

Durham looked a bit jittery in their opening game against Lancashire and will have to pull themselves up against a powerful Nottinghamshire side. With their middle-order as well as the bowling not doing well, they appear to be bit over-reliant on their opening pair. Nottinghamshire Outlaws, on the other hand, have a more well-rounded unit with experienced players available in all departments. Considering the on-paper combination of the two sides, Nottinghamshire Outlaws should win this upcoming encounter with ease.
