Warwickshire Team and Fixtures in NatWest 2017
Question in detailWarwickshire Team and Fixtures in NatWest T20 Blast 2017
Studded with veterans like Ian Bell, Grant Elliott, William Porterfield, Jonathan Trott, Chris Woakes, Jeetan Patel and Colin de Grandhomme, Warwickshire is arguably one of the toughest NatWest sides. They marked the opening season (2014) with a title victory to their name and continued the good run in the next season as well. However, stumbles in the semifinal of 2015 edition kept them aloof from their second title in a row. The 2016 edition, which they ended 6th on the point table, was more a roller-coaster ride than a smooth sail for them.
Having done reasonably well in all the first two seasons and suffered a woeful ending last year, Warwickshire is now set to fancy their chances of winning their second title. Can they? Though nothing is certain in a tournament like NatWest T20 Blast, the way Warwickshire have begun their campaign this year makes them front-runner of the title. Warwickshire team in NatWest T20 Blast 2017 is looking in good touch both with bat and ball.
A good bowling unit, the Ian Bell-led side restricted both their opponents below 160 in the first two Warwickshire NatWest T20 fixtures. The opening match saw them beating Worcestershire by 8 wickets. It was a clinical win as they achieved 153-run target losing just 2 wickets with one over to spare. They came up with a repeated performance in the next game against Nottinghamshire. Two consecutive wins in the tournament so far places them second on the point table next to Derbyshire. The least Warwickshire would be eyeing from here on is to qualify for the knockouts. It would be no surprise if they make it so.
