Other than the T20 semi-final in 2006, this is the first one-day meeting between these two sides since 2001. To give you an idea of how long ago that was, Rikki Clarke and Scott Newman both made their first team debuts at Trent Bridge eleven years ago, in a game that was decided by one of the most entertaining one-day hundreds you could ever wish to see, courtesy of Alistair Brown.

Although it's been a traumatic season for Surrey, the Oval outfit are unbeaten in the Clydesdale Bank 40, whereas Nottinghamshire have two wins and two losses to show from their four outings. But, more recently, the Outlaws have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Friends Life t20 by dint of losing just one of their group matches. Surrey lost seven.

Adam Voges has been Notts' standout performer in limited-overs cricket this season. The 32-year-old Western Australian has made 121 runs from one completed innings in the CB40 and 176 runs at an average of 58.66 in T20 cricket. But James Taylor has been the most prolific - his unbeaten 115 against Hampshire in the CB40 game at the Ageus Bowl was just 77 balls in the making. With Michael Lumb and Alex Hales up first, not to mention Samit Patel waiting in the wings, the Outlaws have the best batting line-up of the seven teams in Group B.

If Nottinghamshire have a weakness, though, it's their bowling. In the CB40, Steven Mullaney and Samit Patel have been economical, without really threatening to take wickets. Darren Pattinson has six scalps, at an average of 17.16, from two starts, and is named in the Outlaws' 13-man squad, as is 21-year-old seamer Jake Ball, who impressed when taking 3-38 against Somerset.

Sorry, I can't see any. But, given the weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow, you may be interested to know that there has never been a one-day game at Guildford abandoned without a ball being bowled. There has, however, been one no result, when Surrey played host to Sussex in 1984.

Rory Hamilton-Brown is now thought unlikely to play again this season, so Gareth Batty takes charge for the first time in this year's CB40. Kevin Pietersen and Chris Tremlett aren't named in Surrey's 13-man squad. Jade Dernbach is still recovering from a side strain, so Jon Lewis, Stuart Meaker and Zander de Bruyn will comprise the seam attack. Needless to say, the hosts are blessed with a plethora of spin options.

If we get any play, Nottinghamshire will win. What, no discussion? I'll tell you for why - the Guildford factor. Surrey have lost four of their last five one-day fixtures at Woodbridge Road. Furthermore they've only won 15 out of 36 overall. There is some hope, however, in terms of the toss. Five of the last six one-day games at Guildford have gone to the side batting second.

M Lumb, A Hales, R Wessels, S Patel, J Taylor, A Voges, C Read (capt, wk), S Mullaney, D Pattinson, J Ball and H Gurney.
