Norfolk skipper Paul Bradshaw is rated as 50-50 for tomorrow's Minor Counties Knockout Cup match in Lincolnshire.

Norfolk skipper Paul Bradshaw is rated as 50-50 for tomorrow's Minor Counties Knockout Cup match in Lincolnshire.

Bradshaw is still suffering with an abdominal strain that ruled him out of Norfolk's last one-day game, the abandoned match against Bedfordshire on May 21, as well as the opening Championship match of the season, against Suffolk at Mildenhall last week.

Should Bradshaw be ruled out tomorrow morning, Norfolk, whose grip on the title they won last season, will turn to fellow Vauxhall Mallards pace man Martin Addison.

The Norfolk first XI have yet to win a game this season, but the Development XI opened their defence of the East Anglian title with a 51-run victory over Cambridgeshire at Manor Park.

In a match restricted to just 30 overs a side, both teams relied heavily on their top order batsmen, but while Norfolk reached 81 before losing their third wicket, Cambridgeshire sliped from 59 for 2 to 79 all out.

In that collapse, Norfolk's Matthew Seager conceded just one run in claiming three wickets, a similar tally to Jake Mickleburgh. Norfolk, winners of the Development Shield in 2005, next visit Easton on play Suffolk on June 8.

Norfolk team for tomorrow (from): C Amos, CJ Rogers (vice-captain), JM Spelman, TR Ward, CR Borrett, MO Wilkinson, RD Moores, LTS Newton (wicket-keeper), C Brown, PJ Bradshaw (captain), IR Slegg, MA Addison.
