Allrounder pushes team-mate Alex Hales’ case for an England recall

Dan Christian has set his sights on leading Nottinghamshire to back-to-back T20 Blast titles, after signing on for his seventh season as one of the club’s two overseas players for the competition.

Christian first signed for Notts in 2015 as a replacement for Daren Sammy, and has captained them in T20 cricket since 2016, leading them to titles in 2017 and 2020, when he was man of the match in both the semi-final against Lancashire and the final against Surrey.

Having helped Sydney Sixers retain their Big Bash trophy this season after his move from Melbourne Renegades, Christian is targeting another title, and believes that Notts’ squad is as strong as it has ever been.

“There’s no reason we shouldn’t go back-to-back,” he told ESPNcricinfo. “Look at the way Alex Hales has played in the last six months. Joe Clarke didn’t get much of an opportunity at the Scorchers but was absolutely belting them in the PSL a couple of weeks ago and Ben Duckett has been doing really well.

“Harry Gurney should be back from injury and Jake Ball is back in and around the England team so we’ve got an extremely strong team there. It’ll be my seventh season which is pretty cool. We’ve had a lot of success as a group.”
