THE PREDICTION

Three successive defeats in Division One have ended Somerset’s chances of lifting the County Championship, however Warwickshire are still well in the fight having beaten Yorkshire in a low scoring thriller last time out. England international Chris Woakes started for Warwickshire against the White Rose and will likely play a huge role again here alongside opener Dom Sibley. Somerset however, are down in the dumps after being beaten by Kent Spitfires in the final of the Vitality T20 Blast at the weekend, ending any hopes they have of lifting silverware this season.

It would be no surprise if the Somerset players already have their eyes on the post season with nothing to play for but pride in this one. Warwickshire meanwhile will be laser-focused, knowing that victory gives them every chance of becoming the champion county. With home advantage in their favour, a result wicket will surely be prepared to suits the likes of Woakes down to a tee. It’s difficult to envisage the Somerset batters coping with this when taking into account their previous Division One performances and any result here other than a Warwickshire win would be a big surprise.
