More County T20 Action

Hopefully this Sunday's T20 fixtures will fair a little better weatherwise than last weekend's. Here is what you have to look forward to :-

Current table-toppers, Berkshire, have the long journey to Harrogate to take on Yorkshire and Warwickshire. All three games should be close, but Warwickshire may just come out on top and keep their good start to 2016 going.
Also heading north are Middlesex and Notts to take on Lancashire. It could be a tough day for Lancs, although they will take great heart from having beaten Kent last weekend.
With the withdrawal of Ireland from Div 1 Sussex & Kent go it alone at Arundel. Kent are 0/2 and will be keen to get some points on the board against a very young Sussex side, which will feature Kiwi Sara McGlashan for the first time.

Home advantage could prove to be the crucial factor for Somerset as they host Wales and Essex at Bath CC. Wales and Somerset come into the day unbeaten and if either of them can stay that way then they will be nicely placed for a move into Div 1 next year. Essex lost the only game they could play last week, in a rain-effected match, to table-toppers Worcs.
And Worcs host Surrey and Hants this week. They will be hoping to make it four wins out of four, but Surrey may have other ideas.

Derbyshire, Devon and Scotland have all won two from two in Div 3, which means the Derbyshire/Scotland clash at Marehay CC will have some added spice. Derbyshire have home advantage but Scotland have some international big game experience. It should be tight.
Devon travel to Northants with Cheshire and Devon will be expecting to take home 8 points.
And at Allbrighton CC Shropshire host Herts and Oxfordshire. Points are vital for all three teams as they try and get their T20 seasons underway.
