THE LOWDOWN

Northamptonshire batted resolutely in their second innings at Edgbaston, to secure a hard-fought draw against Warwickshire in their opening Bob Willis Trophy fixture. Central Group favourites Somerset made light work of Glamorgan at Taunton to leave them on 21 points, just one behind group leaders Worcestershire.

THE PREDICTION

Northamptonshire showed resilience in their first game, but Somerset are a much stronger animal to Warwickshire. With a bowling attack almost guaranteed to take 20 wickets and a batting line-up boosted by the return of Tom Banton from England duty, Somerset are expected to make it two wins from two here in the Bob Willis Trophy.
