THE LOWDOWN

Warwickshire managed to avoid relegation from Division One of the County Championship in 2019, finishing in seventh place above Nottinghamshire. Northamptonshire meanwhile secured promotion to the top flight after coming second in Division Two behind runaway leaders Lancashire.

THE PREDICTION

Warwickshire will need to learn fast how to cope without Dominic Sibley, their leading red ball run scorer in 2019 who is unavailable due to England duty. They do however, boast a side which mixes the experience of batsman Ian Bell, with the youth of fast bowler Henry Brookes. With top order batsman Sam Hain also in the side, Warwickshire look like a team too strong for Northamptonshire, however rain could save the visitors and force a draw here.
