Tom Taylor is an X-factor for Northamptonshire.
Nottinghamshire will square off against Northamptonshire in the Group 1 match of the English One Day Cup on Tuesday. Nottinghamshire had a terrible last game, where they lost to Glamorgan by 8 wickets. They were bundled out for just 73 runs in a rain-marred match. This will be their final league game and they must win this match to keep their knockout chances alive.
On the other hand, Northamptonshire had a fabulous last match, where they defeated Somerset by 81 runs (D/L Method) and registered their second win in this tournament. With Nottinghamshire losing their previous game opening up the table, Northamptonshire must win their last two matches to make it to the quarter-finals. Currently, they are at the 7th spot in the standings with 6 points.
