Warwickshire CCC are now in the UAE on pre-season tour, but before the Bears left we caught up with Ashley Giles look ahead at whats in store for the boys as they begin their pre-season training.

In addition to Ashely’s comments, Neil Snowball, Chief Executive of Warwickshire CCC, said: “The players gained a huge amount from last year’s tour to the UAE and we’re delighted to return in 2017, working in partnership with Sporta Tours. This year’s tour takes in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and will be our biggest programme of fixtures yet, with a two-day match against local rivals Worcestershire, and a minimum of four T20 fixtures, including the Emirates Airlines tournament. The tour presents an opportunity for supporters to get closer to the action than ever and spend good time with the players as they prepare for the new season.”

Warwickshire will start their first 2-Day pre-season friendly vs Worcestershire onSaturday 18th March at 10:30am local time.
