Warwickshire and Surrey will meet in a Division One match to be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

Warwickshire are lagging behind at the bottom of the Division One points table, with three losses from three matches. They have been able to accumulate only 10 points and would have to step up in order to remain in the mix. On the other hand, Surrey have neither won nor lost a match out of their three games. They are at the fifth spot in the points table with 36 points.

Warwickshire lost their first match against Kent by eight wickets and suffered another big defeat against Hampshire by a margin of 314 runs. In their third match, the team gave Somerset a tough fight but they missed out on that game as well by a narrow margin of 49 runs.

Oliver Hannon-Dalby picked up a five-wicket haul in that match in the first innings, while Liam Norwell ended up with a nine-wicket match haul. But it were the batsmen who let them down as the team got bundled out for 135 in the first innings and 189 in the second innings.

Surrey drew their first match against Essex and came out with similar results when they met Somerset and Kent in the following matches.

In their last match against Kent, Will Jacks scored a century in the first innings as the team put up 439 runs on the board. However, they were dismissed for 280 in the second innings and could not cash in on to the advantage.

Sam Curran, Rikki Clarke and Gareth Batty picked up three wickets each in the first innings, while Rikki Clarke and Morne Morkel bagged three wickets each in the second essay.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Warwickshire- Will Rhodes, Dominic Sibley, Robert Yates, Adam Hose, Liam Banks, Tim Ambrose, Alex Thomson, Craig Miles, Henry Brookes, Jeetan Patel, Oliver Hannon-Dalby

Surrey- Rory Burns, Mark Stoneman, Scott Borthwick, Dean Elgar, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Sam Curran, Rikki Clarke, Morne Morkel, Gareth Batty, Conor McKerr
