Their opponent for the night, Bears are at second in the points table. Match between Northants Steelbacks vs Warwickshire Bears scheduled to start at 6:30 PM Local | 11 PM IST on Tuesday, 1st August 2017.



Four wins and 2 abandoned matches took Steelbacks to no. 4 in the table. They currently has 10 points and if they win against Rapids, they will move to top in the north group table. Steelbacks defeated Rapids by 7 wickets. Richard Levi’s current form is the big boost for Steelbacks and also for Fantasy players. He played several match winning knocks this season and hope for much more to come. Adam Rossington, Ben Duckett, Captain Alex Wakely and Rob Keogh contributed with runs in almost each innings. Steelbacks top and middle-order looks strong. All rounder Crook did not get much of opportunities in last few matches. He may come with impressive knock today. Rory Kleinveldt, Richard Gleeson and Rob Keogh bowls well for Steelbacks. Kleinveldt would be the key bowler as he capable of scoring quick runs in the end overs. Ben Sanderson and Nathan Buck are other pacers who played the last game. Azharullah is in 14 men squad for this game and he has chances to replace either Sanderson or Buck in this game.



Warwickshire’s T20 team Birmingham Bears are at no.2 in the points table with 11 points after played 9 matches. They have won 5 matches, lost 2 and one game ended in no result. Warwickshire played with almost the same XI in last three matches. But the opener Ed Pollack struggled back-to-back at top of the order. He may make a way for William Porterfield in the XI. In that case Sam Hain will open the innings and the experienced Porterfield would bat in the middle-order. Captain Ian Bell struggles to score runs in last few matches. He could score runs at any time and expects that run fest to happen in this game. All rounders from New Zealand Grant Elliott and Colin de Grandhomme doing their job nicely for Bears. Both of them are deserves a place in a fantasy teams. Some of their bowlers struggles in one game, but come backs well in immediate next game and that makes Bears to go with same bowling attack. Jeetan Patel, Aaron Thomason, Keith Barker and Boyd Rankin are their regular bowlers at the moment, but as Oliver Hannon-Dolby is named in the 15-men squad, chances for him to be in XI. That case Aaron Thomason is expected to make a way for Hannon-Dolby.
