Round four of the Virtual County Championship between Surrey and Warwickshire is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

With losses from both their matches, Surrey are languishing right at the bottom of the division one of the virtual County Championship after they lost their last match against Yorkshire. The team was bowled out for just 172 runs in the fourth innings.

They will take on Warwickshire, who are placed at the fourth spot in the virtual County Championship division 1 points table, with two wins and one loss from three games. The team has 45 points and won their round 3 match against Lancashire by a big margin of 214 runs, courtesy of centuries from Sam Hain in both the innings while Chris Woakes was among the wickets.

Surrey's decorated batting order with Rory Burns, Mark Stoneman, Hashim Amla and Ollie Pope could not fire in the last match with most runs coming from the blade of all-rounder Sam Curran. The top order is likely to fire this time around with England international Rory Burns expected to take a bit more responsibility.

With the ball, Liam Plunkett and Morne Morkel did well in the last game and will be assisted by the Curran brothers in the clash against Warwickshire.

For Warwickshire, Chris Woakes and Jeetan Patel will continue to be their leading bowlers while the team will look towards Dom Sibley and Ian Bell to contribute more than their last match hero Sam Hain.

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

Warwickshire - Will Rhodes, Dom Sibley, Ian Bell, Sam Hain, Adam Hose, Tim Ambrose, Chris Woakes, Oliver Hannon-Dalby, Henry Brookes, Jeetan Patel, Ryan Sidebottom

Surrey - Rory Burns, Mark Stoneman, Hashim Amla, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Clarke, Sam Curran, Liam Plunkett, Tom Curran, Morne Morkel
