THE PREDICTION

Birmingham Bears have bounced back well from defeat in their opening match, having won their following two games against Notts Outlaws and Derbyshire Falcons respectively. The depth of the Bears’ batting looks like their biggest strength with a strong middle order of Sam Hain, Dan Mousley and overseas all-rounder Carlos Braithwaite coming in at seven. The return of England international Chris Woakes was another boost to a strong all-round outfit that should prove too strong for a Northampton Steelbacks side currently rock bottom of the North Group having lost both their games so far.
