Round seven of the Virtual County Championship between Warwickshire and Somerset 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.

Warwickshire are likely to have an edge over Somerset as the two teams take on each other. The former are placed at the 5th spot in the division 1 virtual County Championship points table with three wins and two losses from five matches with 71 points.

Despite Somerset having played one match more than their opponents, they are stuck at 66 points with two victories and four losses from their six games.

Warwickshire have a pretty decent batting line-up with Will Rhodes and Dom Sibley as their opening combination. In the middle order as well, they have solid players like Ian Bell, Sam Hain and Adam Hose.

Apart from the all-round ability of Chris Woakes, Jeetan Patel's spin makes for a well-balanced bowling attack.

Steven Davies was among the top scorers for Somerset in their 1-wicket loss against Lancashire in round 6. The spotlight will again be on the team's young talent Tom Banton.

Apart from Craig Overton, who did well in the last game, Dominic Bess and Vernon Philander are the other leading bowlers for Somerset.

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

Somerset - James Hildreth, Steven Davies, Tom Banton, Tom Abell, Ben Green, Eddie Byrom, Lewis Gregory, Vernon Philander, Craig Overton, Dominic Bess, Jack Brookes

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