England stars Chris Woakes are Jos Buttler are set to clash at Edgbaston in Birmingham Bears match with Lancashire Lightning this coming Sunday.
Both players have been released ahead of England’s first Royal London One-Day International with Sri Lanka – on Tuesday – to take their place in the battle between the champions of the last two seasons.
Woakes shared a crucial, unbeaten partnership of 37 with Sam Hain to see the Bears to victory in our opening game of the NatWest T20 Blast away at Notts Outlaws and then took three wickets for 25 runs to help set-up a nine-wicket victory over Durham Jets at Edgbaston.
Buttler returned to Lightning following his performances for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League and has scored 109 runs in four games this season, including 56 off just 29 balls against Notts Outlaws at Trent Bridge.
Birmingham Bears match with Lancashire Lightning on Sunday 19 June gets underway at 2.30pm and is followed by Birmingham Bears Women v Nottinghamshire Women.
