THE LOWDOWN

Neither of these two sides managed to win their opening Bob Willis Trophy fixture. Gloucestershire suffered a disappointing defeat over Worcestershire, whilst Warwickshire could only draw at home to Northamptonshire.

THE PREDICTION

It is imperative for both these two teams to win here, or their chances of topping the Central Group will be slim. A result pitch should be prepared in Bristol, which is likely to suit Warwickshire’s strong bowling attack, although Olly Stone will be unavailable after suffering a left side strain in their opening match. Even without Stone Warwickshire look a slightly stronger all-round side than the hosts, who are without wicketkeeper batsman James Bracey and the Bears should emerge victorious in this one.
