The next encounter from the North Group will be contested between the Durham Jets and Warwickshire Bears at the Edgbaston in Birmingham. Languishing at the bottom and eyeing for their first win of the season, Warwickshire will be coming into this encounter to avenge their lost form.
Having played 3 matches so far, Warwickshire tied their first encounter of the season against Yorkshire Vikings when the two teams ended-up scoring 270 runs each. They then slumped to two defeats in a row against Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Nottinghamshire Outlaws by 194 and 118 runs respectively. The margin of defeat in both games has definitely deteriorated their confidence but they have to shrug off their disappointments and come good at this stage.
On the other hand, things are totally opposite for the Durham Jets as they started their campaign with a blast by winning their opening two games against Northamptonshire and Leicestershire by 72 runs and 6 wickets respectively. However, they were taken down by Worcestershire Rapids in their previous encounter by 4 wickets but the momentum they carry from the two wins will definitely help them going into this contest.
