We caught up with First Team Coach Mark Robinson to talk about his side's preparation ahead of Thursday's opening LV= County Championship match against Derbyshire at Edgbaston.

“We’ve done really well,” said Robinson. “Ideally, you’d like another game with the weather and the time of year doesn’t permit that, but the players couldn’t have done anymore.

“It was hard conditions at a wind-swept open ground at Weetwood and it got very unpleasant during that last day and a half.

“But, as they have been all pre-season and since I’ve arrived the players have been great. No whinging, no moaning, they got stuck in and got what they needed out the game.”

How to follow

Warwickshire Members and supporters will be able to watch the action via the Club’s live stream, which will include replays and commentary from BBC WM and BBC Coventry & Warwickshire.

All action will be live streamed through the Match Centre on edgbaston.com, through the Edgbaston app (available on iOS and Android) and through the Warwickshire CCC YouTube page.

Supporters can also keep up to date with the scores and in-play clips through the Match Centre on edgbaston.com.
