Round three of the Virtual County Championship between Warwickshire and Lancashire 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.


Lancashire have exceeded expectations in division one of the virtual County Championship, wining both of their games till now. The team occupies the top spot in the points table with a total of 43 points. Lancashire won their last match against Leicestershire by three wickets.

They will take on Warwickshire who have won one and lost one of their two games. The team is with 23 points and is placed at the fifth spot in the the division 1 points table.

Lancashire have a star-studded batting line-up with Keaton Jennings, Liam Livingstone, BJ Watling, Rob Jones, Dane Vilas, Jos Buttler and George Bailey in their ranks. Each one of them has the capability to go on to score a big one and put Lancashire in a strong position. If the top order can fire, Jos Buttler who is trying to prove his red-ball worth on the back of a string of low scores in Test cricket, is almost guaranteed to cash in.

In Saqib Mahmood, Graham Onions and James Anderson, Lancashire have a trioka of pace bowlers who are all different and bring something unique to the table.

Warwickshire may not be able to match the number of stars that Lancashire have, but with a top four hosting Will Rhodes, Dom Sibley, Ian Bell and Sam Hain, they should be able to post a decent enough total to make a match out of this and then let the bowling prowess of Chris Woakes and Jeetan Patel do its job.

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

Lancashire - Keaton Jennings, Liam Livingstone, Brooke Guest, BJ Watling, Rob Jones, Dane Vilas, Jos Buttler, George Bailey, Saqib Mahmood, Graham Onions, James Anderson

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