After a horror Royal London One-Day Cup last year, Durham and Northamptonshire would come out to make amends this year. They square off at Riverside Ground on Wednesday to kick off their campaigns this year.
Durham finished last season at the bottom of North Group table, managing only two victories out of eight games they were involved in. They will be committed for a better show this season.
Northamptonshire, on the other hand, had a similar tournament last year. Like their opponent for the opening fixture, Northamptonshire managed to win two games while six were a losing cause.
