The round two of the Virtual County Championship between Warwickshire and Northamptonshire 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.

Northamptonshire and Warwickshire had contrasting results in the last season. While Warwickshire finished at the second last place in the County Championship division 1 with three wins and six losses from 14 games and 131 points, Northamptonshire fared lot better, albeit in division 2.

The team finished at the second place in the points table with five wins and two losses from 14 games. Although, they were a fair way behind table toppers Lancashire in terms of points, the team saw a few impressive individual performances not least from middle-order batsman Adam Rossington who scored at an average of over 45, including 8 half-centuries.

The team will get some balance with Faheem Ashraf in their ranks as he is capable of picking up a handful of wickets in swinging conditions along with his prowess with the bat.

Warwickshire have some serious batting talent in Dom Sibley, Ian Bell Sam Hain. With the ball as well, they will be delighted with the presence of Jeetan Patel, who not only takes wickets when the the pitch turns but is also capable of knocking back a few poles on day 1 itself. He was the team's top wicket-taker last season with 64 wickets from 14 games.

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

Northamptonshire - Ricardo Vasconcelos, Rob Newton, Alex Wakely, Josh Cobb, Rob Keogh, Adam Rossington, Tom Sole, Luke Procter, Faheem Ashraf, Nathan Buck, Brandon Glover

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