Wessels is the best former and son of former of Australia and South Africa batsman Kepler Wessels, and was born in Queensland mostly then he had spend his of his childhood in South Africa.It was an amazing match and hats off to the Northants, they came out and pushed us to the wire.
What a great game of cricket for everyone who enjoyed up to Trent Bridge today, this was said by lumb.Wessels for his career best departed 146 runs, from 97 balls, while Lumb went on to make 184 runs as Nottinghamshire posted 445 for eight.The total run aggregate in the match of 870 was enough to beat the 867 in the Surrey-Glamorgan C&G Trophy tie at The Oval in 2002 – the game played in which Ali Brown had bitten the world record one-day score of 268, yet Glamorgan got more 10 runs of winning for losing off the penultimate ball.
Northampton made a mazing attempt to chase the total runs with South African all-rounder Rory Kleinveldt clubbing 127 from 76 balls and Adam Rossington falling out of three runs short of a century but the visitors were dismissed for 425.The Lumbs and Wessels partenership for Notts had beat the previous record for the highest one-day match stand in England, which was done around 318 by Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly for India against Sri Lanka at Taunton in the 1999 World Cup. Now Lumb and Wessels stand third highest in partnership in the list (Game A) , behind Chirs Gayle and Marlon Samuels where Chris Gayle and Samuels scored 372 runs in 2015 World Cup.
